Landlords offered ‘guaranteed rent and hassle-free letting’ to homeless
Wednesday 29 November 2017
Landlords in Lincoln are being encouraged to rent their properties to a charity who supply housing for homeless people.
The City of Lincoln Council has launched a campaign to encourage landlords to rent their properties to social inclusion charity, P3.
The charity offers ‘guaranteed rental income and hassle-free letting’, by managing the properties and taking on full responsibility for maintenance and repairs.
Joanna Gray, private housing liaison officer at the council said: “P3 provide essential and often life-saving support for the most vulnerable people in our community and the City Council is pleased to be working with P3 to encourage local landlords to rent their properties to the charity, thus providing much-needed accommodation options for people who have found themselves street homeless.”
The campaign is to support the new ACTion Lincs programme, which is using Social Impact Bond funding from Central Government to offer accommodation and integrated, multi-agency support to 120 people who are some of the county’s most entrenched rough sleepers.
P3 are leading on the programme, in partnership with all eight local authorities across Lincolnshire, as well as other local organisations such as Addaction and Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
