We will be updating this and other pages as new information is released. The following may answer some of your questions or guide you towards information available at this time.

If you are a current Council tenant and are concerned about your tenancy visit our 'Coronovirus Outbreak' page. Here you can find what to do relating to the impacts you are facing as a result of the coronavirus. We will continue to work with you to maintain your tenancy.

If you are a tenant of another social landlord in Cornwall please contact your Landlord in the usual way.

Social & Supported Housing landlords in Cornwall are working closely together and are committed to keeping tenants safe, keeping vital services running and helping communities to cope and recover. We know many tenants are worried about their jobs and getting into debt. Many social landlords have declared a commitment to support tenants and all landlords will do what they can to support their tenants. Cornwall Council working with Cornwall Housing Ltd has made the same commitment to its tenants.

If you are a tenant in the private rented or social rented sector, protections are being put in place nationally. These will protect you and your family from eviction if you cannot pay your rent as a result of the coronavirus. We will post more details here as they emerge.

If you are being threatened with homelessness then contact Cornwall Housing Prevention and Engagement Teams for advice and guidance.

If you have been made homeless then contact Cornwall Housing Prevention and Engagement Teams for advice and guidance.

If you are a member of the public and see someone rough sleeping please contact Streetlink to report their location. A local outreach worker will visit and support them into accommodation.
