How we can offer you support

1. Housing

Information and advice is also available for Stockport Homes residents. You can find advice about housing options and resettlement support for help with accessing employment, training and benefits. For the armed forces community they provide additional flexibility around the rules concerning a local connection to the borough.

You can read our allocation policy below to find information about additional housing priority given to people who have been in the armed forces and in urgent housing need. This means that if you have left the armed forces, there will usually be priority for you to be rehoused into a Stockport Homes property as long as you're flexible with property types and the area.
