If you are currently living in unsuitable accommodation, we may offer to meet you for a full housing needs assessment and the option to join the council’s active housing register.
You will be asked exactly what you are looking for, including where you want to live, what type and size of property you need and what type of landlord you prefer (council, registered provider or private landlord). This will help to find the most suitable property for you.
