We have moved!

Posted 17 August 2017   |   By Nicola Poulter

Our new purpose built office Cornerstone has now opened to customers. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our new building.

Cornerstone is located next to Stockport Town Hall at 2 Edward Street, Stockport SK1 3NQ.

Our neighbourhood teams based in Brinnington and Bridgehall have moved into Cornerstone. In Brinnington services will be delivered from First House. At Bridgehall we will continue to deliver a reception service providing housing information and advice with our colleagues at Stockport Council. Our local service provision will not be affected. If you need to see a Neighbourhood Housing Officer we are happy to arrange a home visit or an appointment local to you.

Keep an eye on our social media pages to find out about all the facilities available for you our customers and visitors.

Benni

I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
