Homeless or threatened with homelessness

Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council (BGBC) has a duty to provide assistance and advice to those who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.


The Housing Options Team provides advice and assistance to people who are homeless, about to become homeless or are experiencing housing difficulties.

Advice and support can be given to people whether they own their own home, are a tenant of a Registered Social Landlord, rent from a private landlord, a lodger or living with parents.

Information and guidance may include finding temporary accommodation whilst permanent accommodation is sought.

If this applies to you, you must register and submit a Housing Application to BGBC. Once your application is registered, and you are homeless or threatened with homelessness please make an appointment to see a BGBC Housing Options Adviser by contacting them on:
