Shelter Devon & Cornwall - Truro
How we can help
We offer a wide range of help and advice on all housing and homelessness issues. We have a team of advisers and solicitors who may be able to help you with your problem – and if we can’t help, we work with other agencies who can.
This service is only available to clients who are eligible for Legal Aid.
- homelessness, or worried you’ll soon become homeless
- looking for accommodation
- having problems with your landlord
- being evicted or repossessed
- debt problems
- benefits issues
- problems with disrepair
- need help going to court regarding your housing
Even if your problem isn't listed above we may still be able to help - just give us a call to discuss.
We also offer some specialist services:
- support for people being discharged from hospital who are homeless, or have unsuitable accommodation
If you think that one of our specialist services may be able to help you, give us a call to discuss in more detail – or drop in and we can check if you are eligible.
Arrange a face to face session
You can call us to make an appointment to see someone, or pop in – where you will have an initial chat with one of our team to see how we can best help you.
We are often very busy and so we may not be able to deal with your query straight away, but if we must ask you to come back for an appointment, we will do our best to make sure you get some initial information.
Sometimes we may need you to bring in specific documents but if you call ahead we can explain this before you drop in.
We are in the town Centre of Truro, behind the main bus hub. It's a 15-minute walk from the train station, close to all main Truro City Centre Bus stops.
We are located on the ground floor of The Palace Building. Please press the 'Shelter' buzzer and someone will meet you at the front door.
Areas that we cover
- wheelchair access
- adapted toilets
- access to interpreters via phone
If you’re in urgent need
