INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS

INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS

 

Eligibility

Potential residents need to be over 18 years of age and will be asked to provide some kind of formal identification.

In order for us to function as a service, if Number Five can claim housing benefit on your behalf to fund your stay with us, we will. If already in receipt of benefits you must be able to prove this and your rent with us will be £1 per night.

If you are not in receipt of benefits and we cannot enter a full housing benefit claim to subsidise your stay with us, your rent may be up to £15 per night.

 

What we ask of our residents

Residents need to be able to manage themselves and behave in a safe and considerate manner in a shared living environment.

As a resident of the project, it is a requirement that you engage with the support offered and meet with your allocated key worker on a regular basis.

Number Five does not tolerate prejudice, harassment or aggression against others.

If anyone appears to be under the influence of alcohol or other substances, they will be asked to leave the premises to sober/straighten up. If this is not achieved by closing time to the satisfaction of staff, then the offer of a bed for the night will be retracted.

No alcohol or drugs (inc. legal highs) are allowed on the premises and searches may be carried out by staff.

Full terms and conditions are provided upon entry and are signed in agreement by every potential resident upon booking in.

 

Upon arrival

If you have any problems with reading or writing a member of staff will be happy to help you complete the application form.

Staff are responsible for the safety of the house and all its residents, so it is necessary to assess risk for the safety of yourself and others.  For this reason, we reserve the right to use discretion in refusing admission or continuation of stay where there appears to be a risk to the health, safety or well-being of the house or its residents.

A safety deposit box is provided for medication, passports or any other personal belongings to be kept in.

All information held by Number Five is used and held in a respectful and confidential manner and you will be asked to sign a consent form to share relevant information with other agencies on a need-to-know basis.  This can be discussed further with you if you wish.
