Temporary accommodation

Find out how we can help those in need of emergency or temporary accommodation.

We want to provide you with as much information as possible to help you make the right choice about your housing. 

It is important to remember that we cannot provide everyone who approaches us with temporary accommodation.

We receive over 2,000 homeless applications a year and if you apply it does not mean that you will be accepted for long-term accommodation. 

If you have been accepted onto the council's housing list as homeless, you will receive a confirmation letter.

We will continue to offer you temporary accommodation, which could be inside or outside Westminster.
