Aspire Housing has over 9,000 properties across Newcastle-under-Lyme, Cheshire and Stoke-on-Trent ranging from one bedroom bungalows to three bedroom homes and two bedroom flats and everything in-between.

Our properties are made available through a choice-based lettings scheme, meaning search for homes that match your criteria and bid on available properties.

There are a number of routes you can take to find a home with Aspire Housing. In order to increase your chances you’ll need to register in all of the right places, but don’t worry – it’s not as difficult as you think.

The majority of our homes are advertised on Homehunt and HomesDirect.

HomeHunt is the name of the choice-based letting scheme where the majority of our properties are advertised. You must register with HomeHunt to apply for an Aspire Housing property – it takes approximately 20 minutes.

Homes Direct is the choice based lettings service provided by Midland Heart, formally known as the NHA (Newcastle Housing Advice). Approximately 75% of our properties are available to let through this service. Registering is easy and you have the option to receive email updates when new properties are added.

Getting tenancy ready

At Aspire housing, we want to see our customers succeed in their homes and we provide as much or as little help as your need.

Before you find a home, our pre tenancy guidance day is provided through a short introduction morning.

The content of the morning is about running an Aspire Tenancy, Managing your Money and an introduction to Employment and Skills.

In this course you will learn about all that Aspire can offer, about our reward and recognition scheme, and our additional services, handyman, estate caretakers, repairs, updates, money advice and how to start to job hunt…

Aspire Housing is more than just a home; we offer life skills, apprenticeships, work placements, training. We can advise you of all of this at our Tenancy Ready day.

The day is a short introduction 10am until 1pm. CAB will be in attendance to answer all your money questions and to ensure that you are claiming all the benefits that you should.

Our experienced staff will talk to you about our other services that you may be eligible for and how to set foot on the rung of the employment ladder.

You are not alone. We want to see you succeed and we will endeavour to see that you are successful in your life with us.

To apply for the day just ring 01782 854856 and we will invite you along to our morning. You could meet your potential neighbours and have a coffee.
