From Monday 1 June, the Comhairle’s Homeless Services Team moves from their present location in the Hebridean Housing Partnership’s offices at Creed Court, Willowglen Road, to join the rest of the Comhairle’s Housing Team on Sandwick Road, Stornoway.
The Homeless Services Team has been based in HHP’s offices since 2006, but an opportunity has arisen to move to the main Comhairle offices and to be closer to the rest of Housing Services.
It also means that the Homeless team will be closer to The Acres temporary accommodation on Island Road.
The Homeless Service will still continue to work closely with Hebridean Housing Partnership. Lorraine Graham, the Comhairle’s Homeless Services Manager said:
‘We have enjoyed our time based in the HHP offices and have had a very good working relationship with our HHP colleagues. We are looking forward to continuing that close partnership in the future and to working together to provide an excellent service to homeless people and to those threatened with homelessness throughout the islands.’
Members of the public who find themselves homeless, or may need advice to prevent homelessness, should now contact the Homeless Services Team at the Comhairle offices. The new contact telephone number for the Comhairle’s Homeless Service is 01851 822821
