We will help anyone who is homeless or facing homelessness. If we think you are entitled to housing help from the council we will suggest you go there. WHC exists to assist people who are not entitled to that council help.

The sooner you contact us, the more we can do. WHC is not an accommodation agency and has no magic wand, but we will help you understand your situation and what your options are.

WHC’s advice and support centre is open every working day to provide the following help:

  • Help in working out your best choices to find or keep accommodation that will suit your situation
  • Help to make sure you get the benefits you are entitled to
  • Help in dealing with external agencies like Wycombe District Council, the Job Centre or hospital
  • Help with form filling for Bucks Home Choice, hostel applications, ID and so on
  • We can come with you to important meetings with doctors or landlords, or to court appearances, drug and alcohol treatment and the like
  • Help with practical items like clothing, emergency food packs, home starter packs and other emergency assistance at staff discretion 
  • The "Inspire" programme aimed at helping you pursue what you want out of life
  • Help to make a success of your tenancy

WHC staff and volunteers are available in person at our advice and support centre for open access drop-in sessions to discuss how to get the help you need. It is open 10am - 1pm from Tuesday to Thursday, 10am - noon on Monday and Friday. The last admission is 30 minutes before closing. Staff can also be reached Monday to Friday by phone 9.30am - 5pm on 01494 447699.
