Affordable rented housing

How to apply for social housing if you are on a low income and can't afford a private rental.

If you wish to apply to rent either a council or housing association home you will need to apply to the district or borough council covering the area in which you want to live.

Each maintains its own housing register, which is used to let the very limited number of vacant homes. Eligibility rules for each local housing register vary.
