How we can help
Over time, some people find that their home has become too big for them. You may feel a smaller home would be easier for you to look after and cheaper to heat.
The Wise Move team helps council tenants who want to move from a house or maisonette with three or more bedrooms to a smaller home.
Depending on your circumstances, we can help to:
- organise your move
- get your gas and electricity reconnected
- make small adaptations to your new home, such as grab rails and bath rails
We can also provide a support worker to help with your move.
You may also want to consider moving into sheltered housing.
Before we can help you, you need to find a smaller home to move to.
Once you have found a smaller home to move to, we can discuss what package of support can be offered to you.
If you need to contact the Wise Move team, you can email WiseMove@birmingham.gov.uk.
