A message from North Somerset Council;
Would you like to do more to help vulnerable refugee families escaping persecution?
Well, this is your chance to do just that! We have been given great news that the vulnerable persons refugee scheme is back on and we are eager to find privately rented housing to help vulnerable families settle into the UK.
We are looking for properties in North Somerset, including Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea and Weston-Super-Mare. Accommodation needs to be at least two bedrooms. We can offer void payments on the property whilst we prepare and get them ready for a family to occupy. We work with a team of amazing volunteers who will help to decorate and furnish the property too.
Rent can be paid directly to you the landlord at the local housing rate and in some areas, there is discretion to pay up to rental market rates. We also offer landlords a grant of up to £1000 and an interest free loan up to £5000 toward property renovation and improvements.
Families are supported by a Family Support Worker with regular visits to the property.
Above all, this is a chance to provide much needed help to those who are vulnerable and in need of a safe place to live. If you are interested, please telephone or email: Caroline Crossley, Project Officer for the Refugee Resettlement Team at North Somerset Council on 07824085818, firstname.lastname@example.org
