Social housing allocations in Great Britain

Crisis and the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) are undertaking research exploring current practices and issues affecting social housing allocations in Great Britain, in collaboration with the National Housing Federation.

During spring and summer 2022, we’ll be speaking to housing associations, local authorities and people living or hoping to live in social housing, to explore allocations – the means by which it is decided who is prioritised for social housing in different areas.

The research is starting with an online survey of housing associations but will also include case study interviews and discussion groups with key parties involved in social housing allocations in specific localities in Great Britain.
