Housing Applications

Appointments with our Housing Officers to fill out application forms have now resumed.   

Please contact the Office to request a copy of our applications forms be posted to your preferred address. Our Housing Officers are also available by telephone to explain how our allocations policy works, and answer any questions you have about the application process.  

If you need an interpreter please let us know and we will arrange to have one present.

We need one piece of photographic ID (i.e. copy of Passport or Driving Licence). We also need you to provide us with 2 pieces of official mail with your name and address on them (i.e. utility bill, Benefit Agency letter, bank statement etc.). These prove you are living at your application address. 

If you have access to children we will need written confirmation from a solicitor or your ex-partner. 

If you are pregnant you must provide proof of your pregnancy and expected due date. 

All supporting documents can be handed into the office or emailed to enquiries@wwhc.org.uk with your name and address as the subject header. If you are unable to provide any of the above information please contact us at the office to discuss.  

If you or a member of your family suffers from a medical condition which is made worse by your current housing circumstances, you might be eligible for medical points. You will need to complete an additional form explaining why your current property is unsuitable. Medical points are assessed once you have provided all the necessary supporting paperwork. We will contact you to discuss your situation before the assessment.   

If you are homeless you should contact South Lanarkshire Council. They will assess your situation and if they decide that your application should be dealt with under the homeless legislation they may offer you temporary accommodation. They may also pass your details to us and ask us to re-house you as a homeless applicant. 

40% of our lets should be to applicants referred to us from South Lanarkshire Council. If you have already been to South Lanarkshire Council and made an application with them, make sure you have made them aware that you want to be re-housed by us.
