How do I apply to join the Housing Register?

You will need to complete an on-line application form

Computers are available to use free of charge at the Council offices in Beckhampton Street, Swindon or visit your local library.

Please make a note of your unique reference number which appears on the second page when completing the online application. This will also enable you to go back to the application form. If you have not made a note of this number you can call the Homebid team on 01793 445503.

Ways to provide your documents to us:

  • Email your scanned documents to
  • Post to Homebid Team, Housing Needs, Swindon Borough Council, Wat Tyler House, Beckhampton Street, Swindon SN1 2JH

I cannot use or do not have access to a computer, how can I get help?
