Housing Options Service
Kettering Borough Council's Housing Options Team provide advice and assistance to people who may be homeless, threatened with homelessness or in need of advice about the housing options available to them. The Housing Options Team can also give advice on the Housing Allocation Scheme, called Keyways, as well as a range of services including privately rented accommodation, low cost home ownership, social housing, refuges or supported accommodation.
The first step is to call us on 01536 410333, e-mail or visit us to receive advice. We may book a scheduled appointment for you to see a Housing Options Advisor. If you are faced with an emergency involving homelessness during an evening or weekend you will be able to speak to a member of out-of-hours staff who can provide you with advice and assistance.
The Council has a duty to prevent vulnerable people from becoming homeless, but will provide advice even if there is no duty towards you. We have a number of options to prevent homelessness whether you rent your home or you are an owner occupier. Some of these options can enable you to remain in your present accommodation and other options can help you into another appropriate property.
