Working Extra

Working Extra is a housing initiative that gives people in employment and volunteering priority to housing.

You can apply for a home via Working Extra if you:

  • are in work and can provide three months or 12 weekly pay slips with your application form. It doesn’t matter if you live or work within or outside the borough, and/or;
  • have volunteered within the borough for 16 or more hours each month and have done so for six out of the past nine months. You must be able to provide written details from the organisation with whom you are a volunteer

To register for Working Extra please complete our online application form and provide all the relevant information.

You can then look at the homes advertised on our website and place a bid on up to three homes each weekly cycle.

Look out for the Working Extra icon on our homes as they are advertised.
