I’m under 18 or over 35 – Can I still take part in the project?
We’re afraid not. The project is specifically funded for people who are between the ages of 18 and 35. We’re not able to make exceptions to that.
I’m homeless now. Can the project help me to find somewhere to live straight away?
We strongly suggest that you access temporary accommodation as a first step. For example, you might want to consider moving into our own Supported Accommodation project. It can take a few weeks to complete the Private Rented Sector lifeskills course and assessments (depending on how much time you have available to attend appointments). We’re not able to offer emergency accommodation through this programme.
I’ve already done some lifeskills training at another project. What does that mean for me?
We’ve chosen to set the project up with a clear focus on the tenancy training programme, and it’s essential that everyone engages with that fully. We’re not able to offer the individual support to people who aren’t fully engaged in the other aspects. If you’re already receiving support at another project, your worker there may be able to provide some resettlement support as part of their project.
How is the work funded?
We receive a grant from the Crisis Private Rented Sector fund, set up to encourage project like ours across the country. We don’t make any charge to landlords or clients for accessing the project.
Can other projects refer clients to the Private Rented Sector Project?
Yes. We’re open to clients aged 18 to 35 with low to medium level support needs. There’s an application form on the client information section of this website.
