Advice and Bond

ADVICE, ASSISTANCE & ADVOCACY SERVICE

Pembrokeshire Care Society offers advice, assistance and advocacy to anyone from the age of 16 upwards.

This service assists with housing, welfare benefit and other related homelessness problems.

This service is available by appointment at our main office in Haverfordwest (daily) and also in the outreach advice areas.

 

BOND CERTIFICATE SCHEME

This scheme allows a person(s) to access accommodation in the private rented sector through the provision of a ‘damage only’ bond guarantee up to a maximum agreed level.

All applicants must be interviewed and assessed before a bond can be considered for our Adult Bond Certificate Scheme.

Other Bond Schemes are available from the Local Authority.

 

CRISIS INTERVENTION

PCS assists not only homeless persons but also those which are threatened with homelessness.

Crisis intervention is a valuable method of working when a person’s accommodation is threatened. This can be for various reasons e.g. illegal eviction, landlord/tenant dispute, rent arrears.

We can provide legal advice or mediation with the relevant individual/organisation, thus hopefully preventing homelessness.

There is a daily Duty Worker available to assist with crisis intervention advice and assistance.

 

DEBT ADVICE

Our comprehensive list of services includes debt advice.

We offer financial assessments prior to securing accommodation, with the aim of considering affordability of a tenancy and management of own finances.

We are also able to advise and assist on debt management.

Dependant on individual circumstances, we are often able to source additional financial aid to assist with gaining or maintaining accommodation.
