Although there is no emergency housing available through social housing, there is a range of emergency housing and support services available in Christchurch.
Developed by the Community Support Unit, the Council's No Fixed Abode free directory [PDF 341KB] provides information on Christchurch accommodation and support services for people without safe, secure and affordable housing.
The directory reflects the complex causes of homelessness, in particular poverty, mental health issues, drug, alcohol and gambling issues and leaving prison or institutional care.
Available from all Christchurch City Council service centres, reference only copies are available for viewing at all Christchurch City Council community libraries.
If you have any additions or changes to the directory, please notify us either online through Community Information Christchurch (CINCH) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
