Who Should Use This Form?

This form is only for agencies and organisations referring on behalf of their clients. For self-referrals please contact our head office by either emailing or by calling our office on 020 4581 7585 and asking for the supported exempt accommodation team.

Who Can Refer To Us?

Prospective tenants can be referred from a range of sectors and organisations across the boroughs where we provide housing options. This including Local Authorities, Hospitals, Drug and Alcohol Services, Charities, Faith Institutions, Statutory Agencies and the like. In the supported housing scheme, it is also possible for applicants to be referred directly to our Support Providers. However, they will still be required to complete Ash-Shahada’s documentation including the referral form and application form.

Some of the tenants who have successfully been housed with us have been referred from:

  • Birmingham City Council
  • Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council
  • St Basils
  • Crisis
  • HM Prison Sevices
  • National Probation Service
  • Midland Heart
  • Salvation Army

We continue to work with bonafide organisations and trusted partners to support vulnerable people secure much needed housing.

The Process

You must ensure the referral form is completed in full with all sections completed. We require as much detail as possible for a decision to be made for housing. Once the referral form has been reviewed, you will be referred to a dedicated Support Provider who will then discuss the housing options. If you are accepted, we will then make an appointment with you or the potential tenant to complete the relevant forms. The referral assessment is necessary to ensure applicants referred meet the eligibility for accommodation.

Ash-Shahada is open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.

If you are an organisation wanting to refer a vulnerable person for our supported housing scheme, you can contact us on or calling us on 020 4581 7585.
