Housing repair service

We are running a reduced housing repairs service until Wednesday 29 May due to industrial action. We will deal with emergencies as normal but may contact you to reschedule pre-booked appointments.

If your benefits do not cover all your rent, you can apply for a discretionary housing payment.

Search for grants you may be able to get. You do not have to pay these back.

Affordable homes for working households

If your household income is at least £25,000 and you've lived in the borough for the last 5 years, you may be able to rent with our Meridian Home Start affordable housing scheme.

Affordable home ownership 

Some housing associations also provide low-cost home ownership schemes. This means you can buy a share in a home and pay rent on the rest.
