Temporary housing and homeless
If you are homeless or may lose your home help and advice is available from the Coastline Homeless and Social Exclusion Service.
You should also contact a Housing Options Officer at Cornwall Housing. They will try to help you find somewhere to live in the short term, and offer assistance to find a long term home. Call 0300 1234 161 or take a look at the homeless advice section on the Cornwall Housing website.

Homeless Service Recipe book
Throughout the year, volunteers based at Coastline Homeless Service run cooking workshops every Monday and Friday at the Day Centre, teaching homeless clients how to cook delicious meals on a budget.
The recipes that have been cooked throughout the past year have been put together in a Recipe Book which has been distributed to current clients of the service to enjoy throughout 2019.
Please find the recipe book attached at the bottom of this page for you to have a look at and potentially use yourself during the year!
