  • if you want to move into private rented accommodation
  • if you want to join the Sheltered Housing Register or the Council Housing Register.

The form can be completed by yourself, or family or friend, or a professional who is supporting you. Once the form has been completed it will be sent to our Housing Solutions Team who will determine what assistance (if any) can be given. 

Please complete the form with as much information as possible, as this will help us to understand your housing situation. You must answer all mandatory questions, they are the questions marked with a star symbol (*). If you do not complete these questions, you will not be able to move onto the next section.
