Cornwall Council is seeking privately rented housing for a small number of Syrian Refugee families in Mid-Cornwall.

The families have a case worker who can help with communication so there is no need to worry about the language barrier, and deposit and rent in advance will be provided. The property would need to be:

  • 2 or 3 bedroom
  • Fully self-contained
  • Rent at LHA rate (2 bed = £573 per month, 3 bed=£656 per month)
  • Well connected to Truro via public transport
  • Available for the full year (not just a winter let)
  • To meet health and safety standards
  • Suitable for a family with young children
  • Expected to become available during 2017

 

If you would like your property to provide a home for a family in need please contact refugeehelp@cornwall.gov.uk

Anyone wanting to assist is urged to contact their insurer before speaking to Cornwall Council
