Advice and Bond

ADVICE, ASSISTANCE & ADVOCACY FOR THE HOMELESS

Pembrokeshire Care Society offers advice for the homeless if they are 16 or over.

We also assist with housing, welfare benefit and other homelessness problems.

This service is available only by appointment at our main office in Haverfordwest and also in our outreach advice areas.

BOND CERTIFICATE SCHEME

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

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

If you are unsuccessful, 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 like illegal eviction, landlord/tenant dispute, rent arrears.

We can also 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 for the homeless

We also offer financial assessments prior to securing accommodation. By doing this we aim to consider affordability of a tenancy and management of finances.

We can also advise and assist on debt management.

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