Why go to an advice centre?

An advice centre can help you answer the following questions

  • Which part of the Council should I go to for help?
  • What information does the Council need to know in order to help me?
  • What documents should I take with me?
  • Can I get help to pay the rent if I get a place to live?
  • Can I go on a housing waiting list?
  • Is there a rent deposit scheme in my area that can help me get the deposit to move into accommodation?

You may be discouraged if it seems that the Council is putting barriers between you and the help you are entitled to. If this happens you can ask for help from an advice worker who can often persuade them to help.
