Your priority for housing

Housing providers (normally councils and housing associations) give priority to people who are in greatest housing need.

How do we decide who is in housing need?

Applications will be assessed against the eligibility criteria contained in the Homeseeker Plus Policy.

We have four priority bands:

  • Emergency Band
  • Gold Band
  • Silver Band
  • Bronze Band

Full details of the priority bands are set out in the Homeseeker Plus policy.
