Housing options

Devon is a two-tier authority, with eight district or city councils that have local responsibility for housing. In addition, these councils support people and find solutions for those who are in danger of becoming homeless or need help with housing services. Find your local district, city or borough council.

There are a number of housing options to allow people to live independently, with or without additional support.
