Tenant Support Fund

Be quick!!!! Half of the fund has already been applied for, so with this level of interest we expect the fund to be spent within the next few days……. 

Barrhead Housing has set up a fund totalling £24,000 for our Tenants to support with them the following:

–              Payment for tenants in need of financial support for a particular need such as utility bills, urgent white goods (repair or replacement)
–              Fees for clubs, classes or membership for adults or young people
–              Education such as evening classes, courses or extra tuition
–              Skills development related activities
–              Clothing for a specific event or need e.g. a job interview, winter coat, shoe

Tenants can apply once, for up to £200. Applications exceeding that amount will be considered if there are exceptional circumstances (such as significant utility debt or White Good replacement)

If the application is for a utility bill debt, then copies of bills showing the debt will be required

The fund is open to all Tenants, with no particular priority groups, but Tenants will need to have a bank account for it to be paid into if the application is successful

To make the process easy, there is no paper application: Hub Staff, Customer Service Officers and the Community Investment Team will be able to complete an application simply by calling 0141 881 0638 (option 7) or by calling in person at the office

The fund will opens today and remain open until it has been exhausted

We have also set up a partnership with Back to School Bank East Renfrewshire to provide School Uniform/Clothing for young people, so please speak to us if you require this support
