Contact Housing Solutions
The Housing Solutions service is for people in housing need, including the homeless. The Housing Register is the council's list of people in housing need who are able to express an interest in affordable homes advertised on the council's choice-based lettings website Homes4Wiltshire. Demand for social rented housing significantly outstrips supply with over 200% more people on the Housing Register than there were 5 years ago. Where we can, we always explore other housing options with people.
We can provide advice and information on notices from landlords and mortgage lenders, possession proceedings, rent arrears, mortgage areas, and whether someone is entitled to join the Housing Register and other housing issues.
We will work with you to improve your housing circumstances or, if your home is at risk, help you avoid homelessness and find somewhere else to live if necessary.
If you are homeless or at risk of homelessness
Our service is a telephone and email service. Our telephone service is open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, closed Wednesday, 9am to 2pm.
