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.

Housing Options provides advice and assistance to people who are homeless, about to become homeless or are experiencing housing difficulties. Advice and assistance can be given to people whether they own their own home, are a tenant of a Registered Social Landlord, have a private rented sector tenancy, are a lodger or living with parents. This may include finding temporary accommodation whilst permanent accommodation is sought.

If you think this may apply to you then you must fill in an application to BGBC as they will be able to give you appropriate advice, support and temporary accommodation if necessary. If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness please make an appointment to see a BGBC Housing Options Adviser by contacting them on:

Telephone: 01656 643643
Email: housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk
