Nottingham City Council's Housing Aid Team deals with everything related to homelessness - and preventing it - in the city. Look at their website if you are already homeless or may soon become so.
The information you give to Nottingham City Council's Housing Aid team helps them to decide if you qualify for their help under the homelessness rules. If you don't, they may still be able to help you in other ways to find a home.
Nottingham Private Rented Assistance Scheme may help. It looks at how you can find good quality private rented accommodation and may provide you with a 'bond' (a written guarantee instead of a deposit).
