  • provide support
  • improve standards
  • contribute to reducing homelessness
  • provide security for tenants
  • provide confidence for landlords

Benefits for tenants

Tenants who live in these properties will enjoy:

  • access to settled accommodation in the private rented sector, at local housing allowance rates
  • tenancy support like that provided by social housing landlords
