Emergency out of hours

If you've been made homeless outside of our normal working hours and you require emergency housing, we have an out of hours service. However, be aware that if you don't qualify for emergency housing we won't be able to help you out of hours.

In person

You can speak to us if you visit the civic centre during office hours. In most cases we will need to book an appointment to see you in person.
