THANK YOU BIRMINGHAM CITY COUNCIL
We would like to sincerely thank Birmingham City Council’s Housing Department (Northfield Neighbourhood Office) for their assistance in rehousing 6 of our homeless people.
Staff there arranged taxis to the Northfield office where they assessed the needs of each individual, including getting a benefit adviser to help with housing benefit etc. They also made two visits to our squat on Pershore Road to complete forms and help as much as they could.
Two were housed immediately in the Etap Hotel in Lee Bank a further 2 were housed in the Ibis Hotel, City Centre and offers of accomodation have been made to two more.
We have been somewhat critical of the Housing Department in recent months but never of the dedication oif its staff and officers. We will forward this post to Cllr Lines with our sincere thanks and a request to look at some of the others who suffer similar problems.
