How to Apply for a Home...
As we receive far more applications than we have empty properties, we need to make sure we rent our homes to people who are most in need. To do this fairly, we will assess your application using a banding system and we do take into account the community covenant when we allocate bands. If you have left the armed the armed forces within the least 5 years, you will be placed in band B priority need.
The Warrington Job centre plus has an Armed Forces Champion in place to specifically support people into employment who have served. You can find their contact details here. The Armed Forces Champion for the Job Centre Plus is Joanne Fagan so ask for her when contacting them.
