Apply for social housing

Step 4: how long will I have to wait for social housing?

It can take a very long time, sometimes many years, to find a new home. There are thousands of people waiting to be rehoused and very few social housing properties available. Some areas are more popular than others, so being flexible about the type of home and area you wish to live in might reduce your waiting time.

Our website explains the different housing options available and the support available to help you decide.
