Welcome Small

Housing Options is about choices: it's about where you live, work or train and how you live your life. Home Point Herefordshire gives you the information you need so you can make the right choices. If you're looking for information on affordable housing to rent in the county, you've come to the right place.

Our Enhanced Housing Options Wizard offers you personalised housing advice with the benefit of offering additional advice and links to employment opportunities and training. This joined up approach provides you with a service where you can access the information you need to find training and a job as well as a home.  All you need to do is answer a few questions and you will receive a personalised summary of housing options suitable for you and your household circumstances. You will receive detailed advice and the next steps to take for each housing option. This is not an application for affordable housing in Herefordshire but it will provide you with more information about social housing and indicate whether you are likely to be eligible if you apply.

Through our information pages and our on-line self assessment tool (Housing Options Wizard) you will also be able to find additional information on services that are not directly provided by Home Point Herefordshire that may impact on the housing choices you are able to make.

Our aim is to provide consistent information about local housing products and related services that may assist you in finding the right home for you. You will be able to find information about:

 Social rented accommodation
 Mutual exchange service
 Shared ownership accommodation
 Market rent accommodation
 Sheltered and Supported accommodation

You will be able to access available information in your area on:

 Your prospects for accessing socially rented accommodation
 Money and welfare advice
 Work and training advice
 Support available to help you manage your home successfully
 Renting in the private sector
 What to do if you are homeless or threatened with homelessness

Welcome to Enhanced Housing Options

Please remember that the housing options wizard is not an application to join the housing register managed by HomePoint.

Social Housing in Herefordshire is in great demand. Most of the applicants to HomePoint are unlikely to be offered a social housing tenancy. Your Housing Options provides information on alternatives to social housing that may make it easy and quicker for you to keep your home or find a new one. Have a look at our finding a home, housing options and how it works sections, for more information.
