Transitional Housing is medium-term housing for people who have been homeless, before you move to more permanent housing in public housing, community housing or a private rental.
It can also help you get renting skills, and a rental reference.
You can’t apply for transitional housing directly. You need to work with a support service.
- You have a support worker
- You are the most in need
- Be working with a support service who has rights to refers you to a transitional housing property.
- Have an application which is assessed depending on priority and needs of everyone on the waiting list.
- You need to work with your support service for the length of your tenancy and to develop a Housing Plan that is long term.
- Renters in transitional housing have the same rights and responsibilities like any other renter – you must pay your rent, be a good neighbour and look after your home.
