Nomad is a local charity that works to prevent homelessness and support individuals to find safe, independent housing. You can either self-refer to Nomad or be referred by an agency.

They provide the following services:

  • Tenancy support enabling people to manage and sustain their tenancies
  • Rehousing and resettlement
  • Accommodation within the private rented sector
  • They help people over 18 to address single or complex needs.


SmartSteps helps 18-35 year olds who are are either homeless or at risk of being homeless move into private rented houses.

You will be assessed to see which route is most appropriate for you:

  • Route 1: Training Flats – if you need a bit more help to maintain your tenancy then you will access Route 1. Nomad work with a housing association to provide two-bed shared houses for people who need a little more support before they move into private rental.
  • Route 2: Shared Private Rented Houses – if you’re able to maintain your tenancy with minimal support then you will access Route 2. Nomad work with private landlords to find long term homes in shared, privately rented accommodation.
