Rent increases and proposed changes to service charges

From April 2020 your rent will increase by up to 2.7%.

We've already written to tenants with further details about the reasons for this increase along with how you can get extra information and support if you’re worried about the impact of these changes on your financial situation.

A copy of this information can be found by clicking here.

 

From 1 October 2020, we’re proposing that all tenants living at our sheltered housing, extra care and independent living schemes pay additional weekly service charges following central government changes to the way these services are funded.

These changes will also affect tenants and residents who receive Careline but don’t live at a sheltered housing, extra care or independent living scheme.

  6. Hope for Change campaign launch

    Charity campaign aims to reduce begging in Bolton

    A campaign launching in Bolton this week will encourage the public to donate to local charities that support vulnerable people, rather than giving money directly to people begging on the street. The Hope for Change campaign will see collection buckets placed in locations across Bolton with all funds raised being distributed to charities that offer frontline support to help people get their lives back on track. It is hoped this approach will help people off the streets for good.
