Flintshire County Council has launched a social media campaign to raise
awareness about housing advice and assistance available for residents.
The campaign is targeting people who may not realise they are eligible for
assistance, such as those on low incomes and struggling to manage rent and
Several themes will be addressed over the next few weeks, the first being
Affordability. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, get in
touch with Flintshire Housing Solutions who may be able to help.
· Are you behind with your rent payments and in fear of losing your home?
· Have you been hit by the bedroom tax?
· Are you having problems paying your rent?
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Helen Brown,
“Many people may not be aware that help is available if they find themselves in
difficulty, for whatever reason, and are struggling to make ends meet. I would
encourage anyone to get in touch with our housing solutions team who can
provide advice on financial help or alternative affordable housing options. We
want to ensure our residents access the services that are available to them
through Flintshire County Council.”
Housing Solutions can help in a range of circumstances including moving for
work or to care for someone, leaving the armed forces or if your home is
overcrowded or of poor quality. Housing Solutions can arrange access to
affordable home ownership and social housing registers, help with a deposit for
the private rented sector, access to money and/or benefits advice, access to
homelessness services and or options for downsizing into retirement or
sheltered accommodation. Full information is provided on our website at
