Demand for social housing is consistently high.  15/16 housing statistics show that at the end of March 16 over 37,500 people had applied for social housing.  Over 22,500 of those applicants were in housing stress.

Everyone who applies for a home from the Housing Executive or a housing association goes on the waiting list, a points based system. Many people can be on the waiting list quite a while before being offered a suitable home. This course will help you understand the points system and help people maximise their points to increase their chances of getting an offer.

This course will cover:

  • Accessing social rented housing
  • Assessment and ranking of applicants
  • Transfers
  • Complex needs assessments
  • Allocations
  • Challenging decisions

Who should attend? 

  • Advisers
  • Hostel workers
  • Housing Association staff
  • Support workers
