How to Apply
To apply for housing you need to complete our on-line registration which asks for details of you, your household and your current living circumstances (see the link at the bottom of the page). Once you have finished completing the online registration you will see a completion page detailing your application ID and Password, please ensure you keept a note of this information. When your application is processed by our team you will receive an email confirmation and you can then start bidding for properties. This should take no more than 10 working days. Before you start to complete the on-line registration you will need to have an email address, if you need assistance setting up an email account please contact the ICHR team who can arrange this through the Future Skills Team for you.
When completing the on-line form you will need national insurance details for the main and joint applicant, you will also need to input your last 5 year address history with postcodes.
What if my application is not awarded any needs points?
Many applicants will not be awarded points. Applicants without points can still bid for empty properties, but will only be allocated them if no applicants with points awarded meet the conditions for the property. How long an applicant has waited will become more important as more applicants will have the same number of points. If you have bid for a property and have the same amount of points as other bidders, the applicant with the oldest application date will take priority.
The personal information which the ICHR collect about you and any persons on your application meets the standards as laid down in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brought into UK law as of 25th May 2018. It improves our data protection legislation (Data Protection Act 1998) and the rights of individuals to control the data held about them. The GDPR also asks organisations to be more transparent about the data they collect and how they use it.
