How to Apply

If you think Hits Homes Trust is the right place for you then this is the way to apply. 

If you are coming through a support worker or agency let them know to contact us, if not or if you’d rather reach out yourself contact us at:

0116 2545429

or email us at [email protected]

You can also complete this form and we will contact you as soon as possible to arrange an interview: Application Form

We will invite you to an informal interview where you can meet the staff and find out about the project in more detail. It is an opportunity for you to ask questions and see if this is the right place for you. We will help you complete an application form and do a risk assessment. This usually lasts for one hour so please feel free to bring a friend along if you want.

You will be invited to a second interview that lasts for 15 mins and is carried out by the two members of staff. We interview all the applicants for the vacancy on the same day and simply wish to establish whether this is a suitable place for you, whether you understand what is involved in living on your own and if we can provide you with the support you need.

We will inform you of the decision by phone the next day and put it in writing as well. If you are successful you usually move in the following Monday. You can bring a friend to the interview but they will not be able to sit in the interview unless they are an interpreter

Most people are not successful simply because we do not have sufficient flats for everyone who contacts us. You can be placed on our waiting list for three months but this does not guarantee you a place as we have to constantly reassess who is in most need.
