Housing Help and Support

If you're homeless or at risk of losing your home go to Suffolk County Council - Housing help and support

Agencies are working together to see how individuals housed temporarily and can be supported into permanent accommodation to avoid going back onto the streets and this includes a small number who have no resource to public funds and who will require multi-agency decision making on a case by case basis.

Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN)

The Housing LIN is an online hub of information about specialist housing.
