The Housing Support Handbook provides current, local, and accessible advice for anyone facing money problems or the prospect of losing their home in Bristol. It is a free resource both for people seeking support and organisations supporting people in the community.
In a recent survey undertaken by Caring in Bristol only 22% of people polled told us they felt confident they would know where to go for support and advice if they were made homeless, and 65% said they would not know where to go for support if they could not pay their rent next month.
The handbook includes up to date information on:
- Housing law and tenancy rights
- Financial support options available
- Immigration advice
- Job availability, employment schemes, and furloughing law
- Where to find free, expert, and personalised advice on all of the above
Please note: as of July 19th 2021 many of the services listed in the handbook have changed in their design and location.
The information contained in the below PDF can serve as a guide for who to contact for a specific need whilst we work on an updated version.
