Housing Options

If we cannot prevent homelessness, there are a number of options for rehousing and support in and around Rossendale which include:

Private Rents

One of the quickest ways to find alternative accommodation within Rossendale is to privately rent. Every Landlord has to give new tenants information about their rights How to Rent

The Council Bond and Rent in Advance Scheme can assist with a cash payment to your new Landlord if you are claiming or will be claiming Universal Credit or Housing Benefit in your new home. To see if you qualify for help with a Bond or Rent in Advance contact our team
