Access to housing

Housing Resettlement and Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme

March 2014:

Refugee Council is sorry that we are not currently able to accept new referrals for the scheme. We are hoping that new funding will be secured in the near future. Please see this page for further updates in April.

The Refugee Council works in partnership with Irish Causeway Housing Association to help refugees in London access private rented accommodation and resettle in the UK.

We offer landlords and tenants a range of support services to create sustainable tenancies.

Due to our successful record, and expertise in working with refugees and landlords we are recognised as being Champions of working in partnership to assist migrants in the private rented sector by Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people.

We are always looking for landlords who are interested in working with our project and renting properties to our clients. If you are interested please see our leaflet for london landlords for more information.

If you are a refugee looking for private rented accommodation, please see our leaflet for refugees for more information on our project.

Please read here for more information on what it is like to try and start renting privately when you are newly granted refugee in London.
