Description of service and support
We offer a program of support and intensive housing management to ease a person into private rented accommodation whilst being able to sustain it responsibly. There are three members of staff.
We offer 1st stage accommodation for a period of 6 months, 2nd stage accommodation into the private rented sector with a 50% subsidy on the rent shortfall for up to one year for those that successfully complete the first stage.
