Kirklees Council

To support vulnerable people in the community, Kirklees Council have changed their housing allocations policy to give care leavers and vulnerable adults the highest banding on the housing register to ensure they have the greatest choice and least wait for permanent accommodation.  These residents are given 1 to 1 intensive independent living skills training, tailored to their needs, and they are allocated a Housing Solutions Officer to help make the transition from care to independent living as smooth as possible.
