Coronavirus: support and information

If you need help during the coronavirus outbreak, please see our coronavirus webpages.

You can find details of our community helpline and other ways to get support on our I need help page, and there's also help and support if you are self isolating.

We want to support people to stay well, safe and independent in their own homes.  However there may come a point when staying at home is no longer the best option.

Thinking about your housing needs in advance can give you time to understand the options available and help you make plans before things reach crisis point.

Explore the sections below to find out about the different accommodation options and where you can get support.
