Need help with rent, food or heating?

Updated 22 December

Our role at settle goes beyond being a landlord, especially, during these times of COVID-19. We know that this can also be a stressful time of year for many, particularly as we move into the colder months. If you need additional support, we can help with your rent and other essential things like food and heating.

If there's any way we might be able to support you, please call us on 0330 343 0016. We’ll consider your personal circumstances to find the best ways we can help.

Here are details of some other services you might also find helpful:
