Bromley council's Housing Options and Support Service will provide you with housing advice and assistance on your housing related query or homelessness issue. They can help you if you are:
- Homeless today
- Rough sleeping or have insecure housing
- Struggling with rent or mortgage payments
- Served with a notice or your tenancy is coming to an end
- Fleeing domestic abuse
- Struggling to stay in your home and need help or support to do so
They will provide housing advice and develop a plan with you to address your housing issues. They will discuss a range of housing solutions to ensure you know the options available to you.
The council will not provide emergency accommodation to everyone who is homeless, but will always try to prevent you from becoming homeless. If this is not possible, they will try to find a solution and find you a safe place to stay. They will work with other agencies and organisations to ensure they provide you with the services you need to prevent or relieve your homelessness or help you to live in your current accommodation.

About this film
Filming and production by Daniel Moreton.
Transformation Partners in Health and Care’s (TPHC) Pan-London Co-occurring Conditions Programme has worked with experts by experience to co-produce a film, aiming to address prevalent myths and stigma often attributed to people with co-occurring conditions of homelessness, substance use and mental health.
Searching for Answers shines a light on two people’s lived experiences and captures their views on what helps when accessing care and support from services.
The film aims to inspire and encourage frontline staff and services to take a holistic, person-centred approach to care when supporting people with co-occurring conditions, helping clients to improve their health outcomes by offering the right support at the right time.
