What happens next?

The Single Homeless Team is informed of all supported housing vacancies in the borough. When supported accommodation becomes available, we look at who might be the most suitable person for that vacancy. If this is you, we will let you know, usually by telling the person who referred you to us. We will pass your referral information and details of any assessment we have carried out to the organisation that runs the supported housing. They will check the information and confirm that the referral is appropriate. They will then invite you to an interview to discuss the housing being offered. There are a number of potential outcomes from the interview, which include:

  • both you and supported housing provider think this is a good housing option for you and they offer you a place
  • you refuse the offer of housing – in this case we will look at why you refused the offer, and if the refusal was unreasonable, then we will not look for further housing for you and your case will be closed
  • the supported housing provider does not think you are suitable – in this case we will try to find out why and continue to look for housing options.
