How we can help
Advice and guidance
Call our emergency national helpline 0808 8004444 during opening hours if you are homeless, have nowhere to stay tonight, are worried about losing your home, or are at risk of harm or abuse in your home.
Our online advice can help you with your housing rights and the next steps to take in your situation.
Use our webchat if you need help to take the next steps, or prefer not to call.
Our Legal Aid legal service
Our legal team can help if you are eligible for Legal Aid, for example, if you need to go to court about a housing problem or to challenge a council’s homelessness decision.
You need to make an appointment to speak to the Manchester legal team. Please call 0344 515 1774 between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. This number is for new legal appointments only.
