Housing Support Service

The Housing Support Service helps families across Birmingham to learn to cope with the demands of managing their home.

We can offer help with a range of everyday problems, including:

  • benefit applications
  • advice on budgeting
  • links to training and job opportunities
  • grants for furniture and other household goods for new tenants.

We offer support to families with multiple support needs.
