Stoll announces housing criteria for new homes in Aldershot
Stoll, the leading provider of supported housing for Veterans, has published housing criteria for Veterans interested in moving into brand new accommodation in Aldershot, where 34 homes are currently being built for vulnerable and disabled Veterans to rent from spring 2018.
Says Andrea Howlett, Stoll’s director of housing and development, ‘Given the shortage of appropriate housing for Veterans, we are inviting those who need both housing and support to apply for a new home. The new purpose-built accommodation will enable people who have served in the Armed Forces to rent an affordable place to live. They will also receive tailored support to meet their individual needs.’
To be eligible, applicants must have served in the UK Armed Forces. The homes are available for disabled Veterans or those who need support to live independently, and who are currently inappropriately housed and have a low income. Stoll will begin assessing applications from 1 October 2017 and will work closely with local partners including the Army, Mike Jackson House and Rushmoor Borough Council. The local authority will be able to recommend Veterans for 12 of the properties. All applicants will need to meet the eligibility criteria and all will go through the same assessment.
