Increasingly we are seeing people granted Limited Leave to Remain with a no recourse to public funds condition. Min Ling, her partner and their daughter had been living in one room of a friend’s home in Glasgow, sharing the kitchen and bathroom for years.
After they were granted leave to remain and permission to work but with ‘no recourse to public funds’, their friend asked them to find their own home. Despite both working, they couldn’t afford a private let and weren’t eligible for homelessness assistance and came to Positive Action In Housing for help. We told Min Ling about housing associations in her local area, close to work, explained the process and helped her register.
We helped them keep the housing associations up to date with their situation, arranged home visits and were able to make a referral to Queens Cross Housing Association where Min Ling was short-listed for a property easily accessible for work. We continued to communicate between Queens Cross Housing Association and Min Ling, expressing the family’s interest in the short-listed property, and arranging a viewing. Happy with the property and its location Min Ling and her family accepted the offer from the housing association.
You helped me with my housing problem and changed our lives. Our previous housing situation was not good. Now my current home is better, affordable, more privacy, and now we have a bedroom each, Positive Action in Housing helped a lot.
