This is the cover for Research report 4: social housing allocation on immigrant communities

This study looked at whether media stories are correct, that migrants get priority in social housing to the disadvantage of non-migrants. It looked at the facts behind these stories and looked at the allocation of social housing in the UK.

The research asked three questions:

  • who is entitled to social housing?
  • who receives social housing?
  • do some groups have unfair access to social housing? 

The background to this research is increased immigration to the UK and a reduction in social housing.
