How we do it...


We offer help and support to members of the public and to other housing and advice professionals


The funding that allows us to offer our services comes from a variety of places. Our core services are funded by the Housing Division within the Department for Communities. We also get financial support to carry out specific projects from a number of other funders

Donations and products

We are able to provide lots of our services because we receive funding. However, we also have to raise money through providing and selling training courses, seminars and information products and from public and corporate donations. If you'd like to support our work and make sure we can continue to provide advice and assistance to people in housing need you can make a donation


We are committed to making sure the people who use and deliver our services are safe and cared for. Our safeguarding statement sets out what you can expect from us if you work or volunteer with us, or use our services.
