Finding affordable housing

Richard's story

Following an accident, Richard Sheridan's life changed. Unable to work, he eventually lost his family and his home, through no fault of his own.

Richard's film explains how the Council helped him find an affordable home and regain his self-esteem.

If you or someone you know needs help with housing, you'll find information on all our services here.
