Our aim is to help you find an affordable home in the Tees Valley and to give you more choice in deciding where you would like to live.  We will do this by giving you advice about a range of housing options, such as council and registered social landlord rented accommodation, low cost home ownership options and private rented accommodation.

If you want to be considered for housing in any of the local authority areas in the Tees Valley, you will need to register with the scheme online or by appointment with the partner organisation operating in the area in which you live:
