Our house project

We're supporting single, under 35s on out-of-work benefits in West Oxfordshire by taking larger properties and turning them into shared accommodation.

We provide housemates with:

  • Their own room in a shared house for a low rent (this includes bills) and the use of a communal kitchen and computer.
  • Support with access to training and apprenticeships to help them get back into work; and
  • An independent coach to help them to set their job goals and get ‘work ready’.

To help them settle in they are also given a decorating pack so they can make their bedrooms homely. If the housemates would like to take on any DIY in the home we will also help by providing tools and a skilled tutor to help them.

Background

'Our house' is a community housing project. It began in Spring 2018 following financial support from the Government’s Community Housing Fund.

We are working together with West Oxfordshire District Council and have already successfully set up some properties in Witney.
