How points are worked out
The Housing Executive examines your personal circumstances before giving you points in four sections: Intimidation, homelessness points, housing conditions and your health or social well being. Your points total reflects your need to move accommodation.
The Housing Executive does not consider all threats to be intimidation. The intimidation must be serious and fall into certain categories. The Housing Executive will award you 200 points if it decides that you have been intimidated from your home. More
The Housing Executive uses four legal tests when deciding if you are homeless. If it decides you are homeless you will be given Full Duty Applicant status and awarded 70 points on the Selection Scheme. If the Housing Executive decides you aren't a Full Duty Applicant you can still get 50 'Other Homeless' points depending on your circumstances. More
The Housing Executive will give you points for the condition of your home in four areas: sharing, overcrowding, lack of amenities or disrepair, and time in housing need. More
Health and social well being
The health and social well being assessment measures your ability to manage in your current accommodation. The Housing Executive uses the assessment to decide which applicant will benefit the most from being rehoused. The Housing Executive will give you points in four categories: functionality, support needs, social needs, and complex needs. More
