The Wallich Private Rented Sector project ' Housing First'

The Wallich Private Rented Sector project will be delivered in partnership with Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council Housing Solutions Team using the ‘Housing First’ approach. This looks to assist rough sleepers and other hard to house groups to achieve settled accommodation first, as a springboard to addressing other ongoing issues they may be experiencing.

It will do this mainly by two means:

  • Offering financial incentives to private landlords such as rent in advance, enhanced cash deposits as well as the established bond certificate.

  • Providing intensive support in the initial set up of a tenancy to clients referred through various agencies, such as prison leaving, mental health and substance misuse services.
