Why not just wait for a social housing tenancy?

Social housing is in very high demand and it can take many months or years to secure it, even for those in significant need of housing.  Many applicants with less urgent housing needs will never secure social housing. Your Housing Options may include alternatives to social housing that may make it easier or quicker for you to move home or resolve your housing issue another way.
