Housing Register

We recommend that you join the Housing Register at Dorset Council, for other local social housing options.  You can contact them as follows:

 Phone: 01305 221000




Housing Advice Line

If you are struggling with housing costs or worried about losing your home, you can contact the Housing Advice Line, partnership between Dorset Council, Shelter and Citizens Advice Bureau, for free, confidential, non-judgemental advice.

Phone: 01305 221000


The Housing Advice Line is open to anyone who:

- has a mortgage

- rents privately

- has a social landlord.

Experts can assist with many areas of housing such as giving legal and debt advice, help finding a new home due to eviction and sometimes facilitate financial assistance to enable residents to remain in their accommodation.
