'Albany Clients Who Have Moved On'


I originally went to Albany via the council and I had a few problems which resulted in me being evicted from Albany Housing however the staff went above and beyond to help me with being rehoused with Caridon.

Albany staff were always helpful and helped me whenever I had any problems with the property.

I can’t thank them enough!


I moved from a different housing provider to Albany Housing Trust, Albany made the whole experience of moving stress free and they helped me sort out my bills to ensure that I could live independently in the future. Any enquiries I had were dealt with swiftly. Albany Housing Trust provided me with volunteer opportunities to help keep me busy, this also helped with my mental health.

Daisey and Alexandra surprised me on my 30th birthday with a cake and balloons.

I have now received my council self-contained accommodation, I will be forever grateful for the support and advice I received whilst at Albany Housing Trust. Thank you to all at Albany.’


‘SAE joined us in 2019, she has now successfully found a full time job and has secured her own council tenancy. Sherylnna is very thankful to all Albany Housing Trust staff for the support.’


I arrived at Albany Housing Trust in August 2018. I was sofa surfing prior to coming here as I had lost my previous accommodation. Whilst at Albany, I lived in shared houses before settling into a studio property which I was very happy to have been given as I know longer needed to share with anyone. During my time at Albany the staff were very helpful, supportive and went beyond to ensure that I was okay and understood my needs. Although I am sad, I am not with Albany anymore, I have now moved into my own council property and have learnt things that I can take away with me. I want to say thank you to all the staff at Albany who have supported me on my journey.


We are very proud that AS has successfully moved on from Albany Housing Trust to his own self contained property. He has also started his own business; a barber shop, he has very kindly offered AHT clients £5 concession haircuts as well as offering free haircuts to Albany service users during Covid.Thank you AS and good luck in your new home and with your new business.


After 18 months with Albany Housing Trust AS handed back his keys and moved into his own accommodation. We are so proud of you Alan and wish you happiness in your new home.

AS said ‘ Without the help from the whole team at Albany Housing I have little doubt that I would be back to homelessness by now. It has taken less than a year and a half form them taking me under their wing to me being given my own flat with Croydon Council. I really cannot give any higher praise, to everyone on their team, they have all been nothing short of amazing.
