Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 3 October 2016
The aim of this short piece of research was to understand more about the current situation regarding the use of 'Accessible Housing Registers' and 'Common Housing Registers' in local authorities.

This report provides the findings of the survey undertaken as part of this research.

A Common Housing Register is a waiting list shared between the Local Authority and Housing Associations in the same area. It enables people seeking social housing to make just one application instead of many for one area.

An Accessible Housing Register is a system and waiting list for matching available adapted social housing to people with disabilities on the housing waiting list.
