We can provide advice, help and support to anyone who is rough sleeping.
If you’re sleeping rough or know someone who is sleeping rough you can contact Solihull Home Options for help and advice.
The Housing Options team are based at 6- 8 Coppice Way, Chelmsley Wood, Solihull B37 6BX. We are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10.00am and 4.00pm. The office is closed on Wednesdays but we operate a duty homeless service and you can access this by calling 0121 717 1515. If you are sleeping rough you will not need an appointment but you must try to call into the office as early in the day as possible. This gives us more time to be able to work with you and try to find accommodation for that evening.
We work in Partnership with Aquarius who offer an outreach service for rough sleepers. To access this service you can call 0330 0083957 or email email@example.com, or alternatively visit their drop in service at our offices in Coppice Way every Thursday morning, or the Library in Chelmsley Wood.
