Walsall House is a six bedded shared accommodation within walking distance of Walsall town centre. The rooms are furnished and each have their own bathroom and kitchenette area. There is also a shared kitchen and living room.
Upon arrival tenants are required to complete all the necessary information to access housing benefits and are encouraged to set up a direct debit to pay their contribution to the rent. By paying rent regularly tenants are able to show housing providers that they are able to maintain a tenancy. Each tenant will set up a support plan with the support worker and will work to achieving goals. All tenants complete a Life Skills package which equips them for independent living and once again shows housing providers that they are able to maintain a tenancy.
There is large garden to the rear of the property. There is a small park a two minute walk from the house and Walsall Arboretum is a mere ten minute walk away.
Walsall train station is close by and takes about ten minutes on the bus.
When tenants are ready to move on they are supported to bid for properties with the local authority or to save up a deposit for a private rented property. Once they have moved they receive two visits from the support worker to ensure that they are managing on their own.
