NEED HELP MOVING? Cllr Malcolm Parish, Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee is urging residents to contact the council if they need help moving home.

NEED HELP MOVING? Cllr Malcolm Parish, Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee is urging residents to contact the council if they need help moving home.

West Lindsey District Council is piloting a new scheme to help elderly and disabled residents move into accommodation suitable to their needs.

The Assisted Move Scheme aims to help tenants moving between or into social housing.

It recognises many people are living in property no longer suitable to them - maybe their bathroom is no longer accessible or they are struggling to use the stairs.

Some people may also be struggling to pay fuel bills or simply want to move into a smaller property.

“There are many reasons why some people might be worried about moving house,” said Coun Malcolm Parish, Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee.

“Some people simply don’t want the hassle of moving or are worried about their pets or even where to look.

“We are here to help make the move as easy as possible and tailored to your needs.”

Help is available until November 3, with applications accepted until Friday, August 1, to support residents who need support moving into accommodation that meets their current or future needs.
