Many people today face becoming homeless but are unable to secure housing in the private rented sector due to their financial situation.

In order to help, we’ve secured over £2.7 million from Welsh Government to help those in this situation.

The funding will allow us to secure long term leases on properties and make them available to those who are in housing need.

Financial assistance in the form of grants will be available for landlords to help improve their properties and a guaranteed rental income.

Cllr David Griffiths, Lead Member for Housing said, “This is excellent news particularly for those most vulnerable members of our communities who cannot access the private rental sector due to their financial circumstances.”

“Preventing homelessness in all its forms is a priority for us and this funding will give us a significant extra resource in helping to prevent and relieve homelessness throughout the borough.”

“We’re looking for a range of different property types and sizes, particularly single person and larger family homes, in all parts of the borough.

The properties will be managed by our in-house local lettings agency which has been operating since 2015, working with landlords to help create sustainable tenancies for households in housing need and improve standards across the borough.
