Homeless Temporary Accomodation

Temporary Accommodation

If you have nowhere to stay while we assess your housing situation, or if we cannot interview you right away, we can offer you temporary accommodation.

The type of accommodation can vary from Bed and Breakfast to Furnished/Part Furnished Flats.

We try to match the accommodation to your needs where we can. Please remember this accommodation is seen as an emergency provision and as such can be anywhere in Fife.

The accommodation may be run by:

  • the council
  • a private landlord
  • a housing association
  • a voluntary organisation.


We offer support while you are in temporary accommodation, to help you cope at a very difficult time.

Will you have to stay in a bed and breakfast hotel?
If you are pregnant, or have children, you should not be placed in a bed and breakfast unless:

  • you are homeless because of an emergency, such as a flood, or fire
  • you have specifically asked to be placed in an area where there is no other temporary accommodation available, for example to be near friends or family, or your child's school


You can also be placed in a bed and breakfast if:

  • you made your homeless application out of normal office hours, or
  • we do not have any suitable temporary accommodation for you


You should not have to stay there for more than 14 days.

Will you have to share?
You may have to share facilities such as a bathroom or kitchen with other people.  In some bed and breakfast hotels there are no kitchens where you can cook your own meals.
