Homelessness

Homelessness prevention

The Housing Options team can offer advice on a range of housing options, and can put applicants in touch with a range of providers in Coventry.

Please do not wait until you are actually homeless before contacting us. Once you have been made homeless, it is much more difficult for us to help you resolve your situation.

Our ability to prevent homelessness is improved if we are given the opportunity to intervene and assist you with housing problems sooner rather than later.

We can provide the following assistance

  • Advice on Section 21 notices
  • Advice on illegal eviction
  • Arrears and affordability issues
  • Deposits and Rent in advance
  • Family mediation
  • Landlord and tenant mediation
  • Private rented Sector

There are also schemes that assist homeless people accessing the private rented sector in Coventry, and a number of supported housing schemes assisting people who find themselves homeless in a variety of situations.

If you would like to receive independent housing advice, you could contact the Citizens Advice Bureau,  or Coventry Law Centre. Contact details for services are available in the Homelessness Directory.

Further information is also available on Shelter's website.

The Council is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and will use the information you have provided for the prevention and detection of fraud. It will also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing, administering public funds and will use it for comparison across the Council and with external organisations for the prevention and the detection of fraud. For further information on data matching exercises, see www.coventry.gov.uk/datamatchingandnfi
