- Overcrowded families & social tenants
Ex-offenders and veterans
To date, we have successfully rehoused over 1000 homeless individuals and households into permanent social housing across the country.
Our background & successes
Since our launch in 2013, Homefinder UK has gained over 35 local authority members and works in partnership with many other housing associations, voluntary and statutory agencies committed to ending homelessness.
We have further extended our services to domestic abuse survivors through a project called Revive in 2019. Since its start, the project achieved over 100 moves for survivors from different boroughs and backgrounds. Access our Case Studies page to see what our movers have to say about how we changed their lives.
The service is delivered by Home Connections in partnership with House Exchange, part of the Clarion Group. Homefinder UK is funded by local authority and housing association partners whose applicants get access to the scheme free-of-charge.
We are pleased to advertise a range of properties across the UK. We receive a fresh batch of properties on a weekly basis in areas such as Bradford, Middlesbrough, Sheffield, Newcastle. To learn more about the areas, read our city guides.
Wheelchair Accessible properties are advertised through a dedicated Accessible Now channel on the website.
