Safe and Sound

Improving understanding and sustaining tenancies for new migrants

The project is about building relationships with local landlords, identifying what additional information and support they require and creating a space where tenants from new communities and landlords can meet every three months.

For many newly arrived migrants private sector housing is their only option and individuals are often uncertain about their rights. Funded by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) charitable foundation, the Safe and Sound project provides information, advocacy and support to refugees and EU migrants on how to navigate the complicated private rental market. 

 

Our dedicated Private Rented Sector (PRS) Housing Worker delivers advice on how to access accommodation in the private sector and support to help people sustain their tenancy.

 

As part of a unique approach we are training peer housing mentors to raise awareness of tenants’ rights and responsibilities within new migrant communities in the Sandwell area.
