Who can get help?

Under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, not everyone qualifies for help to prevent homelessness but everyone is entitled to information and advice.

Am I priority need?

If you are homeless, eligible and in priority need then the Council must ensure you are offered suitable temporary accommodation whilst it completes further enquiries.

Am I intentionally homeless?

We will need to find out why you are homeless and whether or not you are intentionally homeless.

Do I have a local connection?

If you are eligible, homeless and in priority need we will consider your local connection if all attempts to prevent and relieve homelessness have been exhausted or have failed.
