Support for under 25s
The Housing Solutions Service have highly trained Housing Options Officers who can help young people in the community, supporting them to develop life skills needed to live independently.
This is achieved by providing support and advice to those at risk of homelessness, suffering homelessness and relationship breakdowns.
Practical help is also provided to allow young people to gain or maintain stable accommodation and have the necessary skills to sustain an independent tenancy.
