Homeless or at Risk of Homelessness

Get advice if you are homeless or at risk

Our best advice would be to contact Sandwell Council as soon as possible. The service is free and confidential and you don’t have to be a Sandwell resident to get help and advice. During office hours Monday to Friday you can go along to the Local office nearest to you.

 For further full information about most situations related to homelessness and risk of losing your home  follow this link.
