We accept referrals from prisons, hostels, homeless centres, local drug agencies, the Council, churches or directly from tenants themselves.


The Referral Process

Please complete the referral form and return it to or if you have any questions or want to discuss your referral, do call us directly on 01733 558301


The process

Once we have reviewed the application form we will get in touch to meet the tenant. We then have two meetings:

  • The first is an informal meeting to chat with the potential tenant
  • At the second meeting our Empowerment Worker will discuss and complete a needs, risk and strengths assessment form with the tenant.

If the tenant passes the interviews then we will show him/her the home.

Once they are in a Hope into Action home, we can help them to live independently, sort out their tenancies, help with benefits, work with other agencies, try to get them employment etc
