In Hastings and Bexhill YMCA DownsLink Group runs an Empty Homes project made up of over 100 units across 20 sites.

Empty Homes is a YMCA DLG scheme to bring empty properties in Sussex and Surrey back into use. The aim of this scheme is to provide affordable and safe accommodation to young adults in housing need. We achieve this by leasing properties from private landlords and refurbishing them to a good standard. We then manage the lettings and deal with any issues that arise.

Within Hastings and Bexhill we manage a range of properties including studio flats, one to three bedroom flats and four and five bedroom houses. We also manage a nine bedroom property made up of studio flats and rooms with shared communal facilities.

As well as managing the tenancies we also provide low level support to the tenants aged 18-35 years old, enabling them to begin managing life independently.

YOUNG ADULTS LOOKING FOR ACCOMMODATION: If you are aged between 18-35 years old in the Hastings area then please contact Hastings Borough Council for a referral.

PROPERTY OWNERS: If you are a property owner who would be interested in leasing your property to us then please get in touch:
