Housing advice for Forces personnel

Housing support from Hull City Council

We recognise that long term accommodation is important for people leaving the Armed Forces. We can provide you with information and advice to help you find good quality, affordable housing that meets your individual needs and we offer specific support to those wishing to apply for a council home in Hull.

Call our housing team on 01482 300 300 for advice or to arrange a housing options interview, where an advisor can talk through your options.

We offer advice about a wide range of housing options and services which you may be interested in. These include –

Arrow  Council housing - We offer specific support to those wishing to apply for a council home in Hull after leaving the Armed Forces. You can apply for council housing before you have been discharged from the Armed Forces as long as you know what your discharge date will be.
 
Arrow Adaptations and equipment for your home - If you are disabled or you are experiencing difficulty with daily living activities, specialist equipment and adaptations can help you to remain living independently and safely in your own home. We can provide help to private home owners and council tenants.

There is a range of equipment and adaptations available to help with a variety of day to day tasks, from large equipment like hoists to smaller things such as hand rails.

Arrow Private rented home through our accredited landlord scheme - The Hull accredited landlord scheme gives accreditation status to landlords in the private rented sector who agree to work to a code of management and meet certain housing standards.
 
Arrow Rent a home from a housing association - Housing associations provide affordable homes for people in housing need. Most homes are rented at affordable rates but some are sold through low-cost home ownership schemes. Some housing associations offer support for people with a range of needs including older people, people with disabilities and learning difficulties, and people who have been homeless.
