If we have a duty to you, you will be awarded highest priority banding under the Finding a Home allocation scheme. If you do not fall in to one of the priority need categories, you may still be able to find accommodation through the finding a home scheme as well as other housing options.

Homeless in an emergency

If you are homeless and the council offices are closed, then you can contact the homelessness out of hours service on 01827 709709 and choose option 1.  You should only use this service if you have nowhere to stay immediately.

When you phone the officer will ask some questions and depending on your circumstances, may offer you accommodation. This could be outside of Tamworth. You will then be expected to attend the offices on the next working day for an assessment of your situation and to receive housing advice.
