Housing options service

The housing options service is available to everyone in Southwark with a housing problem. We have a range of services to help and advise you. We understand that it isn't easy to get council housing, so we work with many types of housing providers to help people to find the home they need as quickly as possible.

The online housing options self assessment tool

There are lots of different housing options available and to help you to find out the most suitable options for you, you should first complete our simple to use online housing options self assessment.

When you have completed this you will be provided with an action plan to print off and keep.

The housing option advice line

If you cannot find the help you need on this site or by using the self assessment tool, your next step to getting the help you need is to ring the Housing Options advice line on 020 7525 5950. The advice line is staffed by professional housing officers who can help you find the best solution to your housing problem.

You also need to ring the advice line to make appointments for interviews if you are going to be made homeless and need help or advice.
