Suffolk Refugee Support – Housing Request


Suffolk’s Refugee Support’s Resettlement Programme is assisting families from Syria and the Middle East to re-build their lives in Suffolk and are looking for privately rented homes for families who have undergone a 2 year resettlement programme in the UK. All families have successfully managed a home and tenancy for almost 2 years since arriving in the UK and developed the skills to now effectively manage their own private sector tenancy. Each family is stable, debt free and accompanied by a recent landlord reference evidencing their suitability as a tenant.

These families are unable to provide guarantors upon commencement of their tenancies and it is very hard for them to rent through a private letting agency. Many will also still be in receipt of Local Housing Allowance as they transition into work, but Suffolk Refugee Support would help manage your relationship with the families and organize home visits to ensure the condition of the property is maintained.

Are you a landlord with a house to rent and willing to accept resettled refugee families as tenants? Or do you know someone who can help?

If so or if you have any queries please contact Ionela via the details bellow:
