HM Forces

Veteran’s Gateway is often the first point of contact for ex-HM Forces personnel seeking support. However if you have served in HM Forces you may qualify for help from Three Rivers with your housing.

If you lived in the Three Rivers District for a minimum period of 12 months immediately before enlisting in the HM Forces and have a housing need, you will be awarded a minimum of Band C priority on the Housing Register and your priority date will be back dated by 12 months.

You may also be considered a ‘vulnerable person’ if you are homeless or threatened with homelessness. Depending on your circumstances, this may mean the Council has a duty to provide you with permanent accommodation.

The Council is also committed to the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant. This is a statement of support for between the civilian community and its local Armed Forces community. Further information on the Covenant can be found at Hertfordshire Heroes. As part of this commitment, Three Rivers District Council has an Armed Forces Champion - Cllr Jon Tankard
