We provide a number of options in terms of our housing advice. 

 

 Housing Advice - Free Drop-In Sessions 

We operate face to face advice drop in sessions at our Dovecot & Kuumba Imani offices and you can access our specialist services via these. Please do check on below lists that your issue is within our remit before you attend. 

Dovecot MAC - Mondays & Thursdays  from 10am-12pm

Kuumba Imani Millenium Centre - Wednesdays from  10am-12pm

If you are unable to attend a drop in session, please fill in an online enquiry form which can be found on this website. 

Housing Possession Advice Drop in & Court Duty 

We cover the Housing Duty Possession scheme in both Liverpool & Birkenhead and run a FREE housing possession advice drop at court the same day.  This scheme is very much an emergency service for defendants who haven’t been able to obtain legal advice before their Court hearing. We can assist tenants and borrowers who have rent arrears and mortgage arrears, and in proceedings for anti-social behaviour.

Liverpool Civil & Family Court - Wednesdays & Fridays from 11am-1pm. 

We are at Liverpool court on Wednesdays and Fridays, and alternate Tuesdays for Birkenhead. For more information, please get in touch.
