The onset of the coronavirus pandemic is placing increased stress on the Hambleton District Council’s homelessness service.

Anyone can become homeless through no fault of their own - families, single people, young and old. We are here to help (call 01609 779977).

The council needs to plan for additional temporary accommodation for homeless households in the event that demand increases. We are working with our existing partners, including housing associations and local hotels but more accommodation may be necessary.

Today we are issuing a plea for owners and managers of the following types of accommodation to help us in this time of national and local emergency:

  • Hotel or B&Bs in the Hambleton area, or close by, that plan to remain open. The Government has confirmed that hotels and B&Bs can remain open for the purpose of providing temporary accommodation for homeless households or key workers.
  • Private landlords of rented homes in Hambleton.

Please contact Ali Morton, Housing Options Manager on 01609 767177 for more information.
