Housing is one of the important factors in maintaining stability, not just for yourself but for your family.
We provide advice to help you sustain your current home wherever possible, including preventing homelessness and making appropriate adaptations to make your home more suitable after a period of ill health or disability.
Please note that the London Borough of Bexley does not own its own housing stock. If you become homeless, any emergency accommodation we provide is likely to be outside the borough. Therefore, our information is based on prevailing circumstances within the London Borough of Bexley. Longer term, any accommodation offer may be in the privately rented sector and outside the borough.
