The Housing Options Service aims to prevent people becoming homeless by providing advice and assistance to help people find a solution to their housing problem.
The Housing Register is available to anyone 18 years of age or over who wish to apply for a property. However, due to a shortage of social housing, availability is usually limited to those who are in the most need.
