Our accommodation is provided through shared houses and a voluntary hosting scheme, meaning that places are limited. Please ensure the client understands that Boaz accommodation is rarely available immediately, and we cannot guarantee that every person referred will be accommodated.
Refused Asylum Seekers
Our accommodation for refused asylum seekers is temporary, but clients can stay with us for up to a year which is why spaces are not always available quickly.
Our waiting list is ordered by a scoring system based on priority need (for example: current accommodation, health conditions), and we will normally meet with those scoring highest on our waiting list initially to further establish their situation.
We also offer refugee housing, and have a separate waiting list for this accommodation. When a space is available, we will meet with the client and take copies of their identification to confirm their immigration status (as requested by law), and will offer them the available room (having already shown them the property). Clients in Boaz refugee housing pay rent for their accommodation through their wages or Universal Credit.
For all clients referred, please let us know of any changes to their situation, as this may affect their suitability or priority on our waiting list. You can update us by sending an email to [email protected] or calling the office on 0161 202 1056. If we have had no contact from you or the referred individual after six months on the waiting list we will email you to confirm whether the client is still in need of accommodation, and remove them from the waiting list if not.
Please note - our emergency winter accommodation runs from October until April, and is now unavailable. It will reopen in October 2019.
