Homeless or at risk

Housing register

Please note, being homeless does not give you the right to a permanent council tenancy. It is likely we will assist you in securing alternative privately rented accommodation.

Applying as homeless does not give you automatic access to a permanent council home/social housing - you will have to qualify in accordance with Slough Borough Council’s Allocations policy. Housing register applications are assessed and managed by the Allocation and Lettings team. All offers of council accommodation and nominations to housing associations are made through the council's housing register.

The how to apply page gives more details about how the housing register works and how to make an application.
