Supported Tenancies

Supported Tenancies

(Formerly Move-On Services)

We work in a client centred way with each service user and the support is tailored to their individual needs. Life skills are improved through keywork sessions and each service user has their own support plan which maps out the actions that they need to take to become tenancy ready.

Bradford Cyrenians service users may already face many barriers to accessing permanent suitable accommodation. Some of these barriers could include rent arrears, previous history of offending or anti-social behaviour, inability to manage a tenancy because of debt, inability to budget money, drug, alcohol, gambling or mental health issues. Another barrier which is becoming more prevalent is the lack of suitable one bedroom accommodation which is available to our service users.

When someone moves into our Supported Tenancies accommodation we continue to work with them to address their issues and find the best long term accommodation option for them


Re-housing is discussed with each service user from the beginning of their stay. Through our support planning approach we identify the reasons that they became homeless and encourage them to address these issues. Once this has been achieved we can start the process of moving them on into the community.


All referrals  for the hostel and supported tenancies  come via Bradford Council Housing Options service.  If you are homeless and require accommodation please contact the housing options team

Housing Options Service
Britannia House
Hall Ings
Telephone: 01274 435999

If you are homeless and have nowhere to sleep, outside of office hours please phone: 01274 381999

Once we receive a referral from Housing Options we will conduct a risk assessment based on the information that we receive and if we have a vacancy and you are suitable we will arrange for you to move in to the hostel or supported tenancies the same day.

Meeting Needs

We recognise that everyone is different and some may require more time and support before they can confidently move on into their own tenancy. For this reason, our own stock of move-on accommodation enables us to work with recivers of our support at a pace that meets their needs and enables them to focus on specific areas that might have contributed to their previous tenancy breaking down.
