Urgent appeal to hotels, holiday parks, lodges and landlords

(Last Updated On: March 24, 2020)

The Housing Options Team is experiencing increased demand for permanent and temporary accommodation options due to people finding themselves homeless as a result of COVID19. People who live with their vulnerable friends, relatives, colleagues may need to move out to protect their loved ones, some only temporarily.

We also have people that were already in temporary accommodation and people rough sleeping that we need to move in order for them to self-isolate.

Ideally we are looking for permanent homes for our clients but at the very least we need ensuite rooms where people can self-isolate as per guidance.

We are really keen to help support small businesses through this time, do you have ensuite rooms we can use?

If you have a property to let we will ensure claims for benefits are submitted, we will pay a deposit and rent in advance even if you qualify for a mortgage holiday, we will also provide a dedicated point of contact for you and can provide on-going support for your tenant.

If you can help we are waiting to take your call, please contact Lisa Furse on 07909 937582 or email lisa.furse@torbay.gov.uk
