We aim to support each individual in developing the skills and understanding necessary to manage their own tenancy. For 16-18-year-olds working towards a future tenancy, understanding the meaning of a tenancy and its management is fundamental to the pathway planning process; this understanding ensures that the young person can understand the roles and responsibilities of both landlord and tenant.
For those over 18 who are eligible for a tenancy, Stellar Maris Supported Living offers assistance to ensure that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and that any support in managing issues such as rent payments, maintenance requirements and correspondence is offered as part of their support plan.
We also assist each individual in their application for housing benefit to ensure that the maximum amount available is awarded and rent can be paid on time. The team works in partnership with landlords and housing associations to offer support for tenants in making contact with landlords regarding any relevant queries.
