Tina gets a fresh start thanks to WDH

Published 30 March 2017

Tina, 52, from Pontefract was given a fresh start after moving into one of WDH’s Immediately Available Homes.

Tina said: “After the breakdown of my marriage, I had a really hard time and spent nearly 12 months sofa surfing with friends and family. I felt like I was a burden and that I couldn’t really move on with my life, but then one of my friends mentioned that WDH have some homes that are available straight away. I made the call and moved in about two days later. It’s the best decision I ever made.”

Tina was offered a vacant property in Pontefract and she was able to move in quickly with the support of WDH’s Tenancy Ready Team and Homesearch Officer, Chelsey Limb.

She said: “The support I received from WDH was fantastic. I just wanted my own place and knew that once I moved in I could decorate it to make it my own. It’s my little sanctuary, I feel so content and comfortable here.”

Immediately Available Homes are 1,2 or 3 bedroom homes, available across the district. They are offered for rental on a first come, first served basis. There’s no lengthy waiting list, no deposit required and you get a permanent home.

Tina said: “I’d recommend Immediately Available Homes to anyone. You can move in straight away and start a new life. I’m a changed person. It has really brought me out of my shell and allowed me to be more confident and self-sufficient.”
