Housing and Homelessness in Coventry - 2014
September is housing and homelessness awareness month here at the CAB. Over the next four weeks we will be posting key messages on this site with useful contact numbers and interesting websites you can go to.
We will also be out and about at the Central Library on the 23rd – so come along and find out about your housing rights and entitlements.
Housing and housing-related enquiries make up over 22% of all bureau enquiries dealt with by bureau advisers. It is a massive issue in Coventry.
Issues addressed cover private landlords, social landlords, housing costs and homelessness services.
