We work with you directly to identify and address specific housing issues, ensuring you consider elements that are central to quality housing including:
- What sort of housing am I eligible for?
- How do I apply for housing/rentals?
- What support do I need to be able to live where I choose?
- What are the costs involved and how will I manage them?
- Where do I want to live?
- What is close by?
- Do I need or want to be close to family and friends?
- What furniture or aids do I need in my home?
