We’ve changed the way we let our homes.

If you’re under 55 and wish to apply for a home with us, you’ll need to contact your local council and apply directly with them.

You’re eligible to apply with the council if you:

  • are over 18
  • have the right to live in the UK
  • currently live in the UK, Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland
  • can’t afford to rent a home privately or buy your own home
  • are 16 or 17 years old and have a trustee
  • are from the European Economic Area (EEA) and are working or have the money to be self-sufficient.
