Guide to Leaving Home

The Guide to Leaving Home (PDF: 486Kb / 32pages) provides useful information whether it's your first time or your fifth. It provides you with a glossary so you know the meanings for any technical terms that have been used. It guides you through finding a place to live, private rented homes, tenancy agreements to even buying a home. There is information to help you when you move in and how to keep your home once you have got it. Things to remember and details on settling in to your new home. To finally guiding you through the moving out process and the things you need to do.

The useful contacts section at the back lists all the different organisations that you can contact for help. If you've got any questions or aren't sure about what you're entitled to, don't be afraid to ask that's what they are there for!
