New website will provide easier access to affordable housing in Fife

Fife Housing Register partners

A new website to help people searching for social housing in Fife is being launched this month by Fife Housing Register partners – Fife Housing Group, Fife Council, Kingdom Housing Association, Glen Housing Association and Ore Valley Housing Association.

The site will make it easier for people to find out about the housing options available to them in Fife, as well as offer advice to those in different housing situations such as:

  • preparing for a new home
  • what you can do if you have too many or too few bedrooms
  • dealing with rent arrears
  • leaving the armed forces
  • moving from outwith the UK

The website also allows you access to:

  • complete a housing options assessment to see what housing options suit your needs
  • apply to the Fife Housing Register for housing
  • view other relevant information online

Councillor Judy Hamilton, Convenor of Housing and Communities Committee said: ‘This is an important step forward in providing a better service for people looking for Council or Housing Association housing in Fife – and making it more accessible is going to give people the opportunity to try and find a home that is right for them.  All of our teams have been working on this system for a few weeks and I’m delighted that we’re able to launch this new way of working, which helps tenants to know all of their Housing options across all the Fife Housing Register partners’.

Andrew Saunders, CEO of Ore Valley Housing Association and Chair of the Fife Housing Register Executive is enthusiastic about the new service and commented – ‘The completion of this website, designed to make it much easier for people to find out more about their housing options in Fife, is a fantastic example of what can be achieved when partners work together to achieve a common goal. We hope that the new website will become the place to go for information and support for everyone with an interest in housing in Fife.’
