Just one form
One Manchester is a member of Manchester Move, which means you only need to complete one application and you'll automatically be considered for homes with a partnership of around 18 not-for-profit landlords.
You bid for the homes and the landlord decides who gets them based on their allocations policy.
How to apply for a home
All applications must be made online by visiting the Manchester Move website - click here to view the site.
You cannot be registered on the Housing Register until you have completed the information on Manchester Move and provided all required supporting evidence.
What do I do if I need assistance?
If you need help completing the online form, you should ask a family member or friend in the first instance. However if you are an existing One Manchester resident and don't have anyone to ask, we can help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, address and contact details. If you are housebound we can arrange a home visit from our staff to help you complete the form. We can also arrange for translators.
How long will I have to wait for a home?
It depends on your circumstances and which areas you choose, as well as the type and size of property you want. As soon as your application has been processed, you will be able to see which band you are in on the Manchester Move website.
