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.

 

Housing Dilemmas C.I.C

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.
