We know that it can be difficult to get your first place to live. Particularly if you are young, being faced with long, detailed forms and lots of different organisations to deal with can be very daunting. We've put together a few extra ways to explain how to get started. We hope they are helpful.
Here are some videos that offer useful advice and information:
'A Foot in the Door'
We've also produced a short film taking you on the journey of Danielle and Nicole as they seek to find a place of their own. They visit the Housing Executive and then the world of private renting.
The film highlights some of the problems that young people can face in finding a home and shows that even once a suitable place has been found, things can still go wrong. It ends with some simple advice to help ensure that the dreams of a first "home away from home" do not end in failure.
The film was made by BNL Productions and is called A Foot in the Door.
