Introducing the social housing sector

Social housing exists to help people who can’t afford to rent or buy a home on the open market.

Housing associations provide homes and support for almost six million people around England. They offer social homes, shared ownership homes, some market homes to rent and buy and essential supported and specialist housing.

They also invest in community services and regeneration, provide support to vulnerable people and reinvest all their income into delivering their social purpose.
