Homeless? How We Can Help

Last Modified June 13, 2017

The Emergency Housing Service provides temporary accommodation for people who are homeless and classed as ‘in priority need’ according to legislation. Our aim is to provide customers with the correct level of support to help them to successfully move into permanent accommodation and maintain their new home.

Staff are on duty from 9am until 2am every day and help new customers to settle in, explain how everything works and support them during their stay. Their role is to manage the building and to provide assistance to residents. Within the first week or so of your stay, a needs assessment will be completed with you and a Support Plan agreed to address any issues you may have. Officers will provide general advice and information on various issues such as applying for benefits or grants, obtaining furniture or accessing help from other agencies.

If you feel that you are in need of Emergency accommodation, you will need to initially speak to the Housing Options Team at South King Street, Blackpool.  Their contact details can be found here.
