Accommodation for the homeless

Temporary Accommodation

Due to the high demand for accommodation, most households accepted as homeless may be provided with temporary accommodation until a permanent home is available.


We do not have shelters or hostel accommodation. Any person seeking this type of housing assistance should contact Eden Housing Association on the link to the web site or the telephone number below.

Permanent Accommodation

If you are accepted as homeless, you will be offered permanent accommodation with a housing association as soon as possible, depending upon availability. Please be aware that there is a high demand for accommodation in the district.

If you are not threatened with homelessness but wish to apply for a housing association tenancy, you can apply to join the housing register by filling in an application form available from Eden Housing Association or Cumbria Choice.

Nearly all Council and Housing Associations across Cumbria let their properties under the Cumbria Choice system - see Choice Based Lettings. To find out more, contact Eden Housing Association or follow the link below.
