A brief guide to social housing

More and more people find themselves priced out of the housing market, living in unsuitable temporary accommodation, having to pay expensive rent to private landlords they can ill-afford and, in the worst cases, becoming homeless.

Housing associations have a key role to play in solving this crisis. Our value of a social tenancy report, demonstrates that, by creating safe and sustainable communities, social housing saves money and impacts positively on the economy.

Social housing reduces the burden on emergency services, healthcare and local authorities. People’s life chances are improved, helping them to thrive, enabling them to realise their potential, work meaningfully and contribute to their community.

On these pages, you will find an overview of social housing and the answers to some common housing questions that you might be asked by people living in your area.
