Help and advice in finding privately rented accommodation

There are now almost 2700 households on the housing waiting list, but we can only rehouse around 350 households each year with Registered Providers through Your Choice Your Home scheme - we simply do not have enough housing association homes to rehouse every applicant.

The private rented sector has therefore always been an important source of housing to many of our applicants, as the majority of households on the register need to seek other solutions to meet their housing needs.
