Housing advice

Practical housing advice and support for veterans and their dependants.

If it hadn’t have been for SSAFA I would have been in big trouble.

- Chris, Army Veteran

How can SSAFA help my housing situation?

SSAFA can offer impartial support around housing issues for those who have left the Armed Forces. Our advisors cannot give you legal advice but they will look into your situation and can signpost you to organisations for help. If appropriate, they will try and source financial assistance that you might need to solve your housing problems, for example finding money for a rent deposit or to clear mortgage arrears.

What should I do now?

Get in contact with Forcesline today, by phone, email, or online. 

You can call them on the 0800 260 6780, via webchat by clicking on the button in the bottom right of your screen, or by using the webform below to send them a message.

Talking your problems over with our dedicated team is your first step, and from there we will be able to best understand your unique situation.


SSAFA's services are only available to people who have received at least one day's pay from the Armed Forces (British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Royal Marines, including Reserves), or are in the immediate family of someone who served.
