Finding a home

Enhanced Housing Options 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.

Please follow this link if you are already registered with HomePoint and want to view your account or view or bid on properties.

Don't delay, start helping yourself now

The most effective way to prevent the threat of being homeless or actually becoming homeless is to take all the necessary steps that you can at the earliest opportunity. Whilst the Housing Options teams provide homeless prevention advice and assistance and general housing information, due to the high demand for their services, you may have to wait to speak to an officer or for an appointment to be arranged.

Use our online Housing Options Wizard and you will receive comprehensive advice and information instantly. 

This is an example of the summary table that is provided when you complete an online Enhanced Housing Options assessment. It illustrates which options are suitable with a green tick and which are not by a red cross. Housing options can include money and benefits advice, job search, homeless prevention and many more.
