All eligible applicants are placed on to the waiting list. If you are not eligible you will be notified of this. All applicants are scored using a points based system to determine priority.
When a vacancy arises, the applicant with the most points that is suitable (this will depend on the balance of clients currently living in the scheme and length of time on the waiting list / homeless) will be invited for an interview.
All applicants are interviewed by two members of staff; a support worker can also be present at the interview if you wish.
After the interview, you will be contacted within 3 working days to be informed of the outcome of the interview - whether you are suitable for the scheme or not.
