Umbrella Housing Service

Are you looking for somewhere to live?

The Umbrella Housing Service can help.

We have 182 one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom properties in different areas of Hull which are available for women and children needing homes.

You don't need a deposit or a bond and you can stay in the property as long as you need to.

Rents are set at affordable rent levels which means that your Local Housing Allowance will cover at least most of the cost.

Each property is safe and secure and is located close to a school and other local amenities.

Complete the referral form on this page or call us on  01482  790310 if you would like to apply for a house

You can also drop in to see us at the women's centre the following times:

Monday – 1:00pm – 3:30pm

Tuesday – 9:30am – 12:00pm

Friday – 9:30am – 12:00pm

You will need to bring:


Two proofs of indentification


A passport if you have one

You will also need to bring details of two people who can provide a reference for you

Do you have a property to let?

Due to the large amount of women needing accommodation in the city, this service has now been developed to allow private landlords to let their properties through us. We can offer a management service to private landlords for a competitive fee – sourcing and interviewing prospective tenants and handling all queries, rent collection, repairs and support needs.

Our void rates are consistent at less than half of one percent each year (0.5% per annum) and we can often fill your property on the same day it is vacated.

If you are looking for opportunities for ethical investment, please get in touch. With £12,000 to invest, you could realise up to a 12% return after tax as well as provide a much needed home to a family in need.

If you would like any further information about this service or if you would be interested in our management service then please contact us on 01482 790310.
