Advice and support

Much of the social housing in the borough is in high demand and, depending on a range of factors including your housing preferences, you may experience a long wait before being made an offer of accommodation by one of the partner landlords.  Other options may be available to help you find accommodation or help to resolve a problem you are currently experiencing with your current accommodation.

Some of the options available include:

  • Low cost homeownership and intermediate renting
  • Private renting
  • Mutual exchanges
  • Social housing
  • Accessible housing
  • Mortgage rescue
  • Sheltered housing
  • Overcrowding and disrepair
  • Adaptations
  • Housing related support
