Positive Start

Positive Start is a one-off workshop that will help prepare you for your new home.

If you need guidance with:

  • paying your bills
  • where to get furniture
  • understanding your tenancy agreement
  • budgeting
  • Welfare Reform and how it will affect you
  • knowing what to expect when you move into your property

Then this workshop is for you.

The half day workshop takes place at 1 St. Peter's Square or in either the east or west of the Borough.

86% of customers who attended the positive start pre-tenancy workshops said they now felt confident to manage their budgets and prioritise their debts.

100% of customers said they now know where they could go to get help with debts, advice with housing related matters and support to move into their new home after attending the pre-tenancy workshops.

If you are worried about moving or just need some guidance, please contact the Housing Support Team on 0161 474 3772 or email
