Settled Housing Solutions are the leading practitioners in building successful partnerships between the private rented sector and front-line local government services. 

 

The primary aim of our service is to harness the potential of the private rented sector market so it can:


• Play an important role in providing affordable housing for those on low incomes

 

• Enable local authorities to protect their Homelessness Prevention Grant by delivering ‘More for Less’   

 

• Provide the local private rented sector with a commercially viable and sustainable business opportunity   

 

• Achieve real positive outcomes for both tenants and the local community 

 

Formed in 2007, we have successfully delivered a wide range of private rented sector research and housing option development projects which have gone onto help influence housing and homelessness strategies.

 

We have delivered many seminars and workshops to the private rented sector industry and are also regularly invited to speak at housing and homelessness conferences.

 

Our SettledConsult work has been recognised by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) who have invited us to contribute to Private Rental Sector policy consultations and to deliver presentations to local authorities, social Housing providers and PRS partners about our projects.
       The Valuations Office Agency have also supported our work and contributed to our Local Housing Allowance Training Workshops as well as some of our Private Rented Sector research projects.
