One suitable Offer and Emergency Bands

One Suitable Offer

Where the Homeless Prevention/Relief duties have expired, if you are still homeless and meet the legal requirements to be owed a full housing duty, you will be encouraged to seek private rented housing. Support with your deposit and first month's rent will be offered. You will no longer be able to bid for social housing. You will be eligible for one suitible offer of accommodation in the private or social sector before we discharge our homeless duties. 

 

Emergency Cases

We will only issue an Exceptional/Emergency status when you are assessed as requiring an urgent move to ensure your immediate safety and welfare for whatever reason and/or when remaining in your current home is likely to cause risk of death or serious mental or physical injury.
