Homelessness

Are you worried about your housing situation?

Do you need some help, advice or support ?

You can attend one of our drop in services, where you can speak to someone face to face about your concerns.

The officer will advise you of your options and provide you with the information that you need to help resolve your situation.

If your housing situation is urgent, you will be referred to our Housing Solutions Service. An urgent situation might include sleeping rough or being under an imminent threat of eviction.

The team will then assess your personal circumstances and determine the assistance you may be entitled to receive.

A joint action plan (Personal Housing Plan) will be completed with you. This will identify the actions the Housing Solutions Service will take on your behalf and the actions that you will need to take to improve your situation.

NB If you are under the age of 18, you will be referred to social services who will assess your needs and requirements. The Torfaen Young People’s Service (TYPSS) can offer help and support for young people aged 16 and 17.
