What we stand for

 

Housing Dilemmas CIC, is a not-for-profit organisation formed to reach out to individuals who find themselves faced with the threat of losing their homes and those who have unfortunately become homeless. We offer:

Homelessness Prevention:

We negotiate payment arrangements that are realistic.

We support service-users to claim Welfare Benefits and when necessary have existing claims reassessed.

If negotiations with landlords fail, we support service-users throughout the court processes.

We support service-users to find temporary and permanent accommodations and assist them to rebuild their lives again.

We  liaise with councils, charities, churches and other national and local bodies/groups to support individuals and families.

We work in collaboration with other service providers to implement and run tenancy sustainment programmes to prevent loss of tenancies.

 

Supported Accommodation:

We provide supported housing accommodation to single homeless adults who are willing to engage in a tailored support plan with the aim of moving on to independent living within a period of 24 months or less.

Financial Inclusion:

We signpost to Financial Inclusion services where service-users can be supported to become financially independent by maximising their household incomes through financial accesses and debt management plans. 

Employment, Training and Education:

We work in collaboration with other service providers and the DWP to enrol our service-users on academic and training courses, apprenticeships and back-to-work programmes. 

We provide support with CV writing, job searches, interviewing skills training and jobs applications.
