Dorset Council does not have its own housing stock but relies on registered providers to accept nominations to their properties via the housing register. The Housing Solutions Team oversee the management and assessment of applications from households to join the Housing Register, which is known as Dorset Home Choice.
If you are at risk of losing your home please contact us for free advice and assistance as soon as possible.
Acting early gives us more time to help you. The most common reasons we are asked to help are:
Where possible we aim to make sure you remain in your current home by providing assistance at an early stage to help resolve your situation. Our Housing Advice Services have a duty to prevent homelessness and will seek to understand your current situation and identify what steps we and you can do which could help you stay in your current home.
If you are threatened with homelessness or are working with a household who may require assistance from the council's homelessness prevention team, please complete our online referral form.
