Housing For prospective Landlords
CARE Housing aims to assist local people who are experiencing severe housing difficulties who are usually homeless, or under threat of homelessness, to find good quality rented accommodation through us.
CARE defines supported housing as accommodation provided alongside support, to help people live as independently as possible in the community. Individuals using supported housing are often very vulnerable but desperate to have their own home. With our support they can maintain their tenancy and become good, long-term tenants who know how to look after their homes. We want to offer tenants accessible housing, no deposit and no guarantor on their part.
Could this work for you??
We are seeking good, ethical, community landlords to come on board and lease their properties to us so we can provide a much more in depth and secure management service for you and the tenant. We are currently working with 40+ landlords but are on the horizon of expanding.
This service and our working relationship functions similarly to working with an Estate Agency. However, we take pride in helping people access affordable housing and only take a payment of 4% + VAT from each rent payment.
This is a win - win for both landlord and tenant, and we have been very fortunate to have long term residents with landlords for over 16 years.
Stories of those helped through CARE Housing
Nathan's Story - What having a home did for me
Hi, I am Nathan and I am housed with a private landlord through CARE.
I didn't have a great start in life at home and had been homeless since my Nanna died when I was 17. I was on the streets, sofa surfing and moving from town to town, I didn't have anyone to turn to. I also have autism, ADHD and dyslexia, which made life ten times harder.
I got housed through CARE with a private landlord and my life has completely changed. My mental health & physical health are so much better. I got depression when I was on the streets, but I am much happier now. I used to worry where I would be sleeping that night and now I don't have to worry. I have gone from struggling in life, to getting back on my feet with the support of CARE and a good landlord. It has helped me keep a roof over my head. I have a great relationship with my partner Luci. We live together and we are expecting our first baby soon. I am doing a forklift driving course and have passed the theory part. It's really amazing where I am now from where I was two years ago.
I urge you to place your property with CARE and give other people like me a second chance to have a good life.
