How do I bid for council accommodation?

Following your full self assessment application you will be sent:

  • a six figure user id number
  • a six figure pin number

Using these you can then bid in one of three ways:

  1. Log on to and follow the instructions
  2. Telephone 0845 402 7881
  3. Text 0780 014 0057 with the word "bid" then hash (#) followed by your six figure user id number, then hash (#) and your six figure pin number, then hash (#) again
