Housing Solutions

Whether you private rent, hold a Social Housing tenancy or are living with friends or family, the Housing Solutions team provide advice and assistance to those who are homeless, threatened with homelessness or are inadequately housed.

In your appointment, your Housing Solutions Officer will develop and agree a Personal Housing Plan (PHP) with you which will contain a set of reasonable steps for you both to carry out which will assist you in resolving your housing difficulties. We can also help by:

  • Registering for Homes4U

  • Discussing alternative housing solutions such as renting privately (VATS)

  • Mediating with family/friends/landlords to assist in keeping you in your home where appropriate and possible

  • Referring to relevant support agencies
