You may be eligible if your individual circumstances cause you to struggle living alone or sustaining your tenancy.

Reasons could include illness, medical conditions or disability causing a significant reduction in the quality of life if you are not re-housed. For example:

  • You have a mental health issue
  • You have no recent experience of successfully managing independent living due to a shortfall in support
  • You have a chronic or debilitating illness, physical disability or sensory impairment which means you have support needs
  • You are already receiving support from either social services or another support agency.

The list above is not exhaustive and if you are unsure about whether you are eligible, you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire when you make your application. Please note that you will need to supplyevidence/documents to support your request.

If you meet the medical criteria and your illness or disability is likely to meet one of the medical priorities above, your medical questionnaire will be sent to our independent medical advisors for an assessment.

If successful, you will be placed into one of these two priority groups, depending on the following factors:

1. Medical Priority 1
Urgent re-housing is vital because of a medical condition which carries a significant risk of causing permanent damage or disability if the individual is not re-housed.
2. Medical Priority 2
Re-housing is essential because of a medical condition which will cause a significant reduction in the quality of life if the individual is not re-housed.
If you fall into our vulnerable criteria for Medical Priority 2, above, your application form and medical questionnaire will be referred to our Community Safety or Tenant & Family Services Teams for an assessment.
