In 2002 Poole Council realised that their Social Housing development couldn't meet demand. There was dependency on using Bed & Breakfast and High Street Lettings agencies to alleviate this problem. Grants became available to set up schemes to assist people in urgent need of housing and Homes4Let was established to offer a genuine alternative for the Borough of Poole. Bournemouth Borough Council joined the scheme in 2004.
