County Housing Advice Line

What is the County Housing Advice Line?

The Leicestershire County Housing Advice Line is a free telephone advice service offering impartial information, advice and signposting on a wide range of housing related issues. The service is for anyone aged over 16, living in Leicestershire (excluding Leicester City) with a housing related issue.

How does it work?

A Specialist Housing Advisor is on hand to answer your call promptly; they will take your contact details and information about the issue that you are experiencing, before offering any advice. If we are helping another caller, you can leave a voicemail with your contact details and an advisor will call you back within 2 working hours. In cases where you may require further advice and support, we will signpost you another agency or a relevant service at The Bridge.

  • Homelessness
