Accessing Private Rented Sector Accommodation

If you are homeless or at risk of homelessness, we may be able to help you find accommodation in the private rented sector. Find out if you are eligible for our services

*Please note, this project is temporarily on hold to adhere to Government guidelines around the Coronavirus pandemic. 

We may be able to help you secure accommodation in the private rented sector (PRS) if all of the following apply to you:

  • You are a single adult
  • You are 35 and over OR are exempt from the Local Housing Allowance (LHA) shared accommodation rate
  • You have a connection to Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea or Hammersmith & Fulham
  • You are either a UK national, a person with leave to remain OR a EU citizen with the right to reside

We support people who meet the above criteria to find accommodation and secure a tenancy. We can also support others who can access alternative funding for a rent in advance or deposit. We have a group of landlords who are willing to house people in this situation and our advisors can help you with the process of getting housed. We can also:

  • Advise you on various options
  • Help you find accommodation
  • Provide a guarantee for the deposit
  • Help you access grants from the local authority including for rent in advance
  • Help find furniture if you are moving into private rented sector accommodation
  • Liaise between you and your landlord
  • Help prepare you for living in your new accommodation
