Housing Support

Youth Housing Champions are based within each local housing office. They provide a key point of contact so you can access the right support and information for your needs. Details of how to contact your Housing Champion are noted in the key contacts in housing section.

We will work with you to create a support plan which is tailored to your needs. This ensures you receive all the help and advice required to successfully manage your tenancy.

We will provide you with support to get you set up in your home including:

  • Assisting to set up utilities such as, gas, electric, telephone and broadband, rent, council tax payments and home contents insurance.
  • Applying for any benefits you might be entitled to including Universal Credit, Council Tax reduction, disability benefits.
  • Help to apply for Community Care Grants for household essentials such as carpets, furniture, and white goods.
  • Help to access doctor, dentist, bank account set up, etc.

As part of the plan, and with your permission, we may also refer you to other services that we believe that may help you. 

Contact your local housing office to speak with a Housing Advisor or Youth Housing Champion who will advise you on how to access housing support. You can click here – Key Contacts in Housing to get the contact details of your local office.
