Residents in Tile Cross have joined forces to set up a new Neighbourhood Forum, which was officially launched at a meeting at St. Peter’s Church in September.
The team have a packed programme of events and ideas to improve the area and they’re keen to welcome new members. To find out more about their plans and how to get involved, take a look at the leaflet below!
A new website providing housing advice to people in Birmingham has been launched by the City Council’s Housing Options service.
Birmingham Housing Options is a one-stop shop offering advice and information to social housing tenants, private tenants and homeowners.
The website focuses on four key areas:
- Staying At Home – looking at everything from reporting repairs and adapting your home for accessibility to dealing with rent or mortgage arrears and understanding your housing rights.
- Finding a home – how to apply for council and housing association properties, private rented accommodation and housing for older people.
- Advice and assistance – looking at support services for homelessness and domestic abuse.
- A supply and demand section that provides information regarding the number of council properties available for letting and the demand for these.
This website answers the most frequently asked questions about housing options in Birmingham and I’m sure it will prove invaluable to people across the city. There’s a wealth of information on the availability of homes in Birmingham, the support services that people may need at different stages of their lives and the help that is available in times of crisis.
