If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, then call our Housing Options Team on 0161 217 6016 to discuss your situation or arrange a private interview. You can also e-mail us at [email protected] or drop into our head office at Cornerstone, Monday to Friday from 1pm to 4pm. 

The Team are aware of the difficulties that current and former members of the armed forces and their families can face in finding somewhere to live and can work with you to produce a personalised housing plan. They also have details of the range of services and charities who work with the armed forces and can make referrals and ensure you get all the help you need. 

More details of our Housing Options Team and support available if you are homeless can be found on our homeless advice page.
