Help staying in your current home

Preventing homelessness plays a major part in the work of the Housing Options Service. We can give you advice or take action to help you to keep your home. We can also give you advice and guidance in finding alternative housing if you do have to move so that this can be done in a planned way.

We can help with:

  • Referral to a domestic violence outreach worker
  • A scheme to help with deposits to enable access to the privately rented sector
  • Help and advice negotiating with private sector landlords
  • Referral to private landlord tenant finder scheme
  • Referral to debt and other support services
  • Specialist advice for people under Trafford probation services
  • Help and advice if you are having problems paying your mortgage and face repossession

Please contact Housing Options Service Trafford for more information.

Trafford Credit Union

Trafford Credit Union offers a simple, secure way to look after your money. You can save or borrow as well as get assistance with how to manage your finances.

If you live or work in Trafford you are welcome to join. It costs £2. You have to pay a minimum of 50p a week but you can pay in as much as you like whenever you like.

Loans are offered at the rate of 1% a month, or 12.7% APR. So if you borrow £1,000 over a year, for example, you'll pay back no more than £1,070. This includes free life insurance and there are no hidden extras. This is subject to set terms and conditions, and the right to decline an application is reserved.
