Mental health and housing in Torfaen

If you’re facing mental health challenges that are affecting your housing or your benefits, we can work with you to improve your situation and your wellbeing.

Your housing situation

If you live in Torfaen and you’re facing mental health challenges that are affecting your housing or benefits, we can work with you to improve your situation. We can help with setting up new tenancies, liaising with landlords and authorities, working with you on applications and appeals, and finding ways you can improve your mental health.

We can also provide housing with support for up to two years. During that time we’ll work with you on a plan that looks at your mental health and housing needs, and moves you towards being ready to live in your own home.
