Sustain is a free service which helps vulnerable council tenants maintain their tenancy when at risk of losing their home, due to:

  • rent arrears
  • breach of a court order
  • breach of tenancy clauses (eg antisocial behaviour)
  • needing support to manage day to day tenancy issues

We’re experienced in helping vulnerable tenants, including:

  • those with mental or physical health problems
  • those with physical or learning difficulties
  • those who suffer with substance abuse
  • older or younger people
  • those for whom English isn’t their first language                           

We accept referrals from tenants, as well as:

  • local area housing offices
  • social services
  • our anti social behaviour unit
  • community mental health teams
  • voluntary agencies in the borough
