Housing Advice Service

Need some housing advice?


Our Housing Advice and Options team provides FREE housing advice to everyone in the district - home owners and renters.

Our Housing Advisers will be able to advise you on your housing options and certain legal rights if you have any. 

If you need advice, email us on housingadvice@scambs.gov.uk or call 03450 450 051

The Council has duties to help you to prevent your homelessness. We will assist you to stay in your current accommodation or discuss other housing options.

To help you with your situation, it is vital you contact us as soon as possible.

A factsheet providing background information on the measures within the Homelessness Reduction Act and the Homelessness (Review Procedure etc) Regulations 2018, can be found here.

We operate an appointment service that can become busy, so please contact us as soon as you can.
Appointments will usually be at our Cambourne offices.
