You can apply to live in one of our properties in a range of ways:

  • Nominations

    We have agreements with Sandwell, Dudley, Birmingham and Wolverhampton Council which means they can nominate applicants to us for rehousing. If you are registered with any of these councils, you will be able to apply for any properties that we nominate to them. The council will then send the successful application to us for further assessment.
