You do not feel safe in your home because of domestic abuse

What the Council can do

If you feel you cannot stay in your own home the Council's Housing section may be able to offer you temporary housing. You should be ready to give as many details as possible, including:

  • any police reports
  • identification - for example, a copy of your passport, birth certificate or home office papers
  • your financial information - for example, bank account details

The Council may:

  • help you identify any places where you have a right to live
  • put you in touch with organisations that could help you
