Find Your Own scheme

We may be able to assist you with some funds to help secure your next accommodation through our Find Your Own scheme.

The aim of the scheme is to help you if you are homeless or threatened with homelessness to secure accommodation in the private sector.

Benefits of the Find Your Own scheme

  • One month's rent and one month's deposit.
  • If you qualify, we offer financial help to rent a property in an area of choice.

  • A gas safety certificate.
  • An electrical safety certificate.
  • A carbon monoxide alarm (if appropriate).
