South Lakeland District Council
The Council has a legal duty to help and assist homeless people. If you are homeless you must contact South Lakeland District Council and ask for a Housing Options Adviser. At the very least they will be able to give you housing advice. To find out where to go check out the Directory.
Part of SLDC offers 'Supporting People' Services.

Everyone who is in housing need is encouraged to complete an Application Form. which is available at any Council office. You can also request a form by telephone. The Council has an Allocation Policy to decide who is offered a tenancy and an explanatory booklet will be provided with the application form.
Due to the high demand for Council accommodation, most families accepted as homeless are likely to be provided with temporary accommodation until a permanent home is available.
