Housing Needs


The Housing Needs section of Housing Services incorporates Housing Options, Homelessness Prevention, Homelessness and the Island HomeFinder.

Our aim is to ensure that anyone regardless of tenure, can access a range of options and advice regarding housing, to ensure everybody lives in decent, affordable homes. We recognise that we can’t do this in isolation and therefore work in partnership with other Council departments, Registered Providers and the community to achieve the best possible outcome for our service users.

If you wish to contact us, our offices are located at 7 High Street, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1SS. Telephone 01983 823040, Fax 01983 823050, or email housing@iow.gov.uk. Our offices are open from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 4.30pm Fridays.

Independent advice can also be obtained from the Law Centre or from the national homelessness charity, Shelter. More information can be found on Shelter’s website, and you can click here to be taken to their website.
