We are looking for a 3 – 4 bedroomed house to accommodate a family of six, who were resettled under the Syrian Resettlement programme a year ago, and are seeking to accommodation in the Hailsham area.  The Council will be supporting the family and ensure that rental payments are always made to the landlord and other tenancy conditions are met.

Like neighbouring authorities the Council has committed to help find homes for up to 40 Syrian refugees over the next five years, all of whom are in desperate need of assistance. They are vulnerable people, who through no fault of their own, have been living in refugee camps and insecure accommodation in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt and Syria.

If you are an owner or landlord with property in Hailsham that may be suitable for this family, or you know someone who may have a suitable property, please contact the Council’s housing department on housingoptions@wealden.gov.uk or call 01323 443370.
