Guidance for Legal Aid for Possession Proceedings

Published: Wednesday 2 August 2023

Housing Loss Prevention Advice Service

Legal aid for possession proceedings - GOV.UK (

Government-funded legal advice and representation (legal aid) is available to anyone facing possession proceedings.

Help is available from the moment you receive written notice that someone is seeking the possession of your home. This might be an email from your landlord or a letter from a creditor. Your financial situation will not affect your right to access this support and you will not need to pay.

A housing expert (funded by the government) will work with you to identify what may be causing someone to seek possession of your home and recommend potential solutions. For example, they may be able to provide legal advice on matters such as:

  • illegal eviction
  • disrepair and other problems with housing conditions
  • rent arrears
  • mortgage arrears
  • welfare benefits payments
  • debt

In the event you are unable to resolve matters and you are asked to attend a court hearing, a housing adviser can also provide free legal advice and representation at the court. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your hearing and speak to the court usher and they will direct you to the adviser.

You can find your nearest Housing Loss Prevention Advice Service provider by typing in your postcode and ticking the box ‘Housing Loss Prevention Advice Service’ at:

Help with Cost of living

Cymorth Gyda Chostau Byw

Rydym i gyd yn teimlo effaith y cynnydd yng nghostau byw ar hyn o bryd. I lawer ohonom, mae hyn wedi dod yn fwy na chynnydd mewn costau byw - mae wedi dod yn argyfwng costau byw. Ni ddylai unrhyw un orfod dewis rhwng gwres neu fwyta, ond mae hyn yn dod yn realiti dyddiol i lawer.


Mae arian ac iechyd meddwl yn aml yn gysylltiedig - gall poeni am arian effeithio ar eich iechyd meddwl, a gall iechyd meddwl gwael wneud rheoli'ch arian yn anodd. Gall poeni am arian arwain at deimladau o bryder, straen, iselder neu ddicter.


Hoffai Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Aneurin Bevan helpu mewn unrhyw ffordd y gallwn. Felly, rydym wedi creu tudalen wefan a sefydlwyd yn benodol i gynnig gwybodaeth am y gwasanaethau cymorth sydd ar gael yng Ngwent i helpu'r rhai sy'n ei chael hi'n anodd.


Mae tudalen y wefan newydd yn rhoi gwybodaeth am:

  • Problemau Ariannol – Help gyda Phroblemau Dyled, Arian a Chymorth Iechyd Meddwl, Dyled a achosir gan Gam-drin / Rheoli
  • Bwyta'n Dda – Sgiliau Maeth am Oes, Y Cynllun Cychwyn Iach (Cael Cymorth i Brynu Bwyd a Llaeth), Banciau Bwyd Lleol
  • Cymorth yn eich Ardal - Mae gan bob Awdurdod Lleol yn ardal ein Bwrdd Iechyd lawer o gefnogaeth ar gael yn eich cymuned leol - ni waeth beth sydd angen help arnoch. Lleolwch ardal eich Awdurdod Lleol (Cyngor) isod i ddod o hyd i adnoddau yn agos atoch chi.

Support with the Cost of Living

We're all feeling the impact of the current rise in the cost of living. For many of us, this has become more than a cost of living rise- it's become a cost of living crisis.


No one should have to choose between heating or eating, but this is becoming the daily reality for many.


Money and mental health are often linked - worrying about money can affect your mental health, and poor mental health can make managing your money difficult. Worrying about money may lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, anger.


Aneurin Bevan University Health Board wish to help in any way we can. Therefore, we have created a website page specifically set up to provide information regarding support services available in Gwent to help those who are struggling.


The new website page provides information on:

  • Money Problems – Help with Debt Problems, Money and Mental Health Support, Debt caused by Abuse / Control
  • Eating Well – Nutrition Skills for Life, The Healthy Start Scheme (Get Help to Buy Food and Milk), Local Food Banks
  • Support in your Area - Each Local Authority within our Health Board area has lots of support available in your local community - no matter what you need help with. Locate your Local Authority (Council) area below to find resources near you.
