What help is available?
Aragon offers financial assistance to some tenants who transfer or exchange to smaller accommodation. This is a one-off payment depending on the number of bedrooms. For each bedroom you are giving up Aragon pays £1,000.
If you need practical help with your move, for example arranging removals, Aragon can refer you to an appropriate support service. If you are moving to a retirement scheme, the Home Support Officer at the scheme may be able to assist you.
