Set up supported living

Kat Russell 10/04/18 General Housing Topics

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area as a manager and Director of a supported housing company.

I want to set up alone though in East Midlands Area. However i do not have money to do this to pay a landlord and as I have not launched a company to date I have not spoken to other providers or the local authority.

I require any advice with:

1. What is the first thing I need to do?
2. What insurances do i need to have in place?
3. Has anyone done this with zero funds?
4. Should I approach the council before hand?
5. Is there any landlords willing to provide properties to help me get started?

I have a business plan already and have worked out basic costs, costs generated will differ on size of property.
