Homefinder UK is a national mobility scheme which advertises immediately available social housing properties and offers Case Management services to help relocate homeless applicants nationwide. Homefinder UK partners with over 100 local authorities and housing associations with very successful outcomes and a tenancy failure rate of less than 1%. Over recent few years Homefinder UK has rehoused over 400 households into permanent social housing nationwide, with some of those being domestic abuse survivors.
Case Management is an extremely important part of our service. Our dedicated staff will assist victims of domestic abuse and discuss their needs and areas of choice, assist them with property bids, liaise with both parties and assist with references, viewings and much more.
For example, the Case Management service will consist of the following:
- Assisting moves to social housing in other local authority areas in the UK
- Attending multi agency meetings
- Working with other domestic violence and abuse organisations to ensure wrap around care and support
- Signposting to other domestic violence and abuse organisations
Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status and sexual orientation. Many survivors have no choice but to flee their homes resulting in homelessness. Our goal is to work alongside with all of our partners in the hopes of creating a safer environment with more options for the survivors of domestic abuse.
