If you live in the Hinckley & Bosworth area and you don’t feel safe at home due to domestic violence, please visit our support for domestic abuse which contains information about what you can do, local services with their contact details along with information about our dedicated Domestic Abuse Outreach Service.
If you need somewhere else to live, then please contact Housing Options for help and advice.
All our housing options officers are experienced in helping people affected by domestic abuse to secure accommodation. You are normally considered to be legally homeless if it is not reasonable for you to occupy your home because of the risk or fear of domestic violence.
The officer you speak to will ask you some questions about your situation. You may be asked for supporting evidence, which could include details and dates of incidents, but you will not be turned away if you do not have this information. We look at each case carefully. If you need this, we will try to help you find somewhere safer to live in the short term.
If you think you are in immediate danger, always dial 999 and ask for the police.
