Support and accommodation
No support provided in EHM. This is a tenancy sustainment service. Tenants will meet with key worker once a fortnight to address issues such as rent payments, repairs and co-tenant relationships. Our Peer Landlord scheme is for those in work or seeking work. Tenants take an active role in their households, supporting each other to ensure the household runs smoothly. A reduction in rent is offered as part of this scheme, which is saved towards the cost of a deposit.
