Government Calls on Landlords to Help National Effort to House Afghan Families

Posted on March 4th, 2022

The government is calling on landlords with suitable properties to submit offers through a relaunched housing portal. The portal allows private landlords to put forward offers of accommodation so councils can match them to families.

More offers are urgently needed to help move families from temporary bridging accommodation and into their own homes – so they have the stability they need to rebuild their lives in the UK.

Landlords will be supporting the more than 300 councils who have already pledged places. This is backed by £5 million in government funding.

Homes have been provided to more than 4,000 evacuees but more offers are required to ensure that no family is left without an appropriate housing match.

Accommodation must be self-contained with no shared facilities, available for at least 12 months, and meet safety regulations and landlord responsibilities. To support as many families as possible, properties should be as close to the Local Housing Allowance Rate as possible. There is a particular need for larger properties and properties that are in a close proximity to one another.

If you have a property that may be suitable, please register your interest with the gov.uk’s ‘Afghanistan Housing Portal’ – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/afghanistan-housing-portal-offers-of-support
