Looking for a home
Applying for a home through HomeChoiceLincs
North Lincolnshire Council, North East Lincolnshire Council, Ongo, Shoreline Housing Partnership Ltd, Guinness Northern Counties, Longhurst and Havelok Homes and Sanctuary Housing Association are in partnership to provide the HomeChoiceLincs scheme. The partnership is responsible for more than 20,000 homes across Northern Lincolnshire and it is hoped that other registered providers of rented homes in the area will eventually join the scheme.
This scheme gives home seekers more choice and information about homes that are available throughout the whole of Northern Lincolnshire offering better opportunities to find a home you want and need.
To apply to go on the housing register you must apply online.

Whether you are looking to rent, buy your own place, need emergency housing or want to find a care home, it is important to find somewhere that suits your needs. You also need to understand the rights each option would give you:
If you have health problems, a disability or are an older person and struggling to manage your property, please contact Adult Social Care.
You can also speak to a Housing Advisor in person by attending one of the Housing Advice Team drop-ins at Church Square House or Barton Local Link (please see 'Opening hours' for details of times).
If you are unable to get into the office you can call or email the Housing Advice Team. Home or hospital visits can also be arranged where necessary.
If you have just moved to the UK
If you have recently moved to the UK, are an EU citizen that doesn't work or you have no recourse to public funds you will probably have limited options.
