About us

The tenancy sustainment team act upon referrals for clients that are already known to the housing department. These are for single applicants and families with social, welfare and health issues, those who have not held a tenancy before, or anyone who is deemed to be particularly vulnerable.

Provide support to people moving from temporary accommodation into leased or private rented accommodation.  Carry out resettlement work for clients moving into sheltered accommodation.

Assist the client with budgeting, setting up utilities, applying for Social Fund payments, and ensure that the client is receiving the maximum benefits.  Refer the applicant to appropriate agencies dependent on the needs, and ensure that the clients are aware of all the services available.

Attend tribunals with clients, deal with anti-social behaviour and ensure that the client maintains their tenancy and avoid homelessness.
