Got an opinion on social housing? We want to hear it. Please take five minutes to answer our survey. Your answers will go into the report we’ll take to political leaders later this year.
We will share the evidence we collect with our social housing commissioners, and use it in our public engagement work. We won’t share anything that identifies who you are.

Definitions

For the purpose of this survey, social rented housing are homes that are owned by councils or housing associations. Rents are set at a level that takes into account what local wages are. Private rented housing are homes that are owned by private landlords who set their rents at a level that they choose. They can offer tenancies of as short as six to twelve months.
