What we do best

"Working with our residents and communities we offer a range of housing, property management, regeneration, community and support services."

Waiting lists are a part of Housing Trust life and being on a list is no guarantee of accomadation in the near future.
Once you apply, you'll be put on a waiting list and that could be it. Housing associations normally offer housing to people most suited to that particular property. You may have to wait a long time for a suitable property to become available. see Help and advice getting on the waiting lists
