COVID-19 PANDEMIC - IMPACT UPON HOMES4WILTSHIRE

02/06/2020:  HOMES4WILTSHIRE HAS NOT BEEN ADVERTISING IN THE LOCKDOWN.  THE COUNCIL AND ITS PARTNER LANDLORDS ARE STARTING ADVERTISING AGAIN ON 4 JUNE 2020

PLEASE NOTE THAT VERY FEW HOMES WILL BE ADVERTISED INITIALLY IN THE FIRST FEW WEEKS AND NUMBERS WILL PROBABLY REMAIN LOW FOR SOME TIME

In the meantime, under the government's guidance, the council and its partner landlords are using some vacant homes for households in the greatest housing need who are otherwise at risk ie people in hospital, people in short stay care beds and the homeless

If you have an urgent housing need, please call us on 0300 456 0104.  Please DO NOT visit the council's offices to discuss a housing application, bidding or any other housing matter until further notice

If you need help in the lockdown, and live in the Wiltshire Council area, please see the Wiltshire Council website here

  • If you are thinking about applying for re-housing, you can speak to us about alternatives to moving, for example improving people's present housing conditions so that the need for a move is less urgent

  • If you are struggling financially, there is help for working age people, help for state pension age people, help for self-employed people, help for the sick, help with housing costs for working age people, help with housing costs for pension age people and people in supported housing and help with the Council Tax.  For more information about your entitlement to help, please see the Gov.uk benefits calculators

  • If you need help with managing money in these difficult times, please see our money management page

  • If you have made an online housing application and wish to provide supporting documents, please use any scanning facilities to which you have access or a camera and email the images of documents to the service at homes4wiltshire@wiltshire.gov.uk.  Alternatively, photocopies may be sent by post to the council’s offices at Homes4Wiltshire, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge BA14 8JN.  NB If you have sent supporting documents to help us to perform the housing needs assessment, please be patient and refrain from contacting the Housing Department unless it is essential.  We have a 4 week backlog of housing needs assessments at present

  • If you are an EU, EEA or a Swiss national, you and your family may need to consider applying to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. For further information, and to apply, please click here
