Anybody over the age of 16, who has lived in the area they’d like to apply for social housing in, can join the scheme.
Social housing vacancies across Somerset are let through Homefinder Somerset – which is a partnership of the local Housing Associations and Somerset local authorities:
Mendip District Council
Sedgemoor District Council
South Somerset District Council
Taunton Deane Borough Council
West Somerset District Council
This means that people applying for social housing across Somerset only have to complete one application form and be assessed in accordance with the Homefinder Somerset Common Lettings Policy.
The Registered Providers of Homefinder Somerset have formed a Homefinder Promotion Group. The aim is to promote Homefinder Somerset due to:
- The numbers of the register being lower than previous years
- They have hard to let properties in rural areas
- People may not think they are eligible or may not aware of Homefinder Somerset as the route to social housing
