Separate packs are available for sheltered and Extra Care Housing, so please ask for the pack that you need. More information on these types of housing can be found on the page on ‘Support Needs’.
Application packs can be made available in other languages or in large print if required. If you need help to fill in your application form, or would like to meet with our Housing Assistant to talk about your application or find out more about your prospects of being re-housed, please ‘phone or email the office to set up an appointment. Appointments are generally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Once we receive your completed application form, we we will send you an acknowledgement, to let you know that we have received it.
We will then assess your application in line with Renfrewshire Common Housing Allocation Policy and Bridgewater Housing Association Addendum to the policy which came into effect on 1 May 2019. This has been developed by Renfrewshire Council in partnership with Bridgewater, Linstone, Paisley and Williamsburgh housing associations. The policy has been developed with a clear focus on meeting housing needs and introduces a common approach to how we allocate homes that are available to let. Applicants still need to register with each partner organisation separately and Bridgewater will continue to operate and manage our own housing list.
We have a limited number of properties which have been built or adapted for people who use wheelchairs. Some tenants may require their homes to be adapted in some way because they, or a member of their family are disabled or in poor health. Adaptations may be undertaken where an Occupational Therapist has carried out an assessment and makes a referral to us for adaptations to be carried out.
