Homelessness - What does this mean for you?

  • Dedicated Housing Needs Team who are able to provide free, confidential advice on housing and homelessness matters for all residents of Bassetlaw regardless of whether tenant, owner, lodger or landlord
  • New triage system in operation so no need for formal homeless application at first point of contact
  • Same day appointments/out of hours service in cases of emergency
  • Designated Housing Options Officer for duration of application/s
  • Personalised Housing Plan that will clearly outline what action is to be taken by the applicant and the Council to either prevent homelessness or secure accommodation elsewhere which will be kept under constant review
  • Improved chances of preventing homelessness as the Council now has longer to work with applicants
  • Services are designed to meet the needs of the most vulnerable groups in the district, ie Offenders/ex Offenders, Care Leavers, former members of the armed forces, survivors of Domestic Abuse, those being discharged from hospital, those suffering from mental illness or impairment or any other specific group that the Council identify as being at particular risk of homelessness in the district
