What is Social Housing Support?

Social housing support is housing provided by a local authority or an approved housing body to people who are assessed as being unable to afford housing from their own resources. If living in a local authority dwelling, the State is effectively your landlord.

How can I apply for Social Housing Support? 

The provision of social housing is delivered through your Local Authority and an approved housing body. To qualify, you must be eligible for social housing, and you must be in need of social housing.

· The housing authority will assess your eligibility first.

· If you are eligible, it will then assess if you need social housing.

To be regarded as eligible for social housing you must satisfy the income criteria. You must also show that you do not have suitable alternative accommodation.
