About housing

There are lots of options to consider when looking for housing and you may not know where to start. You need to think about the quality of the housing, where it is located and the length you can stay there (tenure).

Homefinder Somerset is a partnership of District councils and Housing Associations working together to make the process of finding a home easier. Rupert describes how it works during October 2022 Local Offer Live sessions.

Homefinder is a good place to start when looking for somewhere to live and includes:

  • Social housing (renting from a council or housing association)
  • Mutual Exchange
  • Private renting
  • Renting a room
  • Home ownership and affordable home ownership
  • Extra Care Housing
  • Supported housing

If you are considering moving due to your home not being able to meet the needs of you disabled child also look at the Disabled Facilities Grant .
