Tenancy Support

Our Support and Advice Team offer free, impartial and confidential help across the Mid Devon area.

Tackling Homelessness, Avoiding Evictions, Bringing Hope

If you are finding it hard to pay your rent, or need some help in your tenancy for any other reason you may benefit from tenancy support.

Our advisors can offer short and long term assistance helping where needed to enable you to make a success of your tenancy.  We can also help you if you have a new tenancy and need some help getting everything sorted. We can support you if you are in social housing, or private rented accommodation and it doesn’t matter if you have worked with us before.

When you call we will take some details (name, address, date of birth) and a brief summary of what your enquiry is about. You will be allocated an advisor who will be your main point of contact. Your information is kept safe and secure (more information about that here)

We work as a team so we may also be able to help with more specific advice about Housing, or by putting you in touch with our Debt and Money Advisors

 

You can ask for help yourself by contacting us or be referred by another organisation using our Referral Form.
