Why not just wait for a Social Housing tenancy?

The demand for Social Housing is far greater than the supply of properties. As a result, only those considered to have a high housing need are likely to be offered social hosuing, and even those people are likely to have a long wait before being offered a social housing property. Housing options are the alternatives to Social Housing that are likely to make it easer and quicker for you to find a home.
