The Effects Of COVID-19 On Social Housing

July 22, 2020

The COVID-19 crisis has taught us a lot about ourselves, but the most important lesson that we have learned is just how resilient we can be when faced with a global crisis. Parents are teaching their children from home and workers are learning new ways to work from home using Zoom meetings, video chat and other online tools has shown us that one of the most important elements in our lives is our homes. For those in social housing, this is especially true.

    And now that the COVID-19 crisis is all but over and the world is getting back to some sense of normalcy, what now? What has changed that we, as parents, workers, and consumers, have to adapt to now? How will we shop? How will we interact with coworkers, clients, and the people that we meet each and every day? How will the COVID-19 crisis affect social housing in a post- COVID-19 world? To learn more, keep reading as we take a look.

What IsSocial Housing?

    For those of you who don’t know whatsocial housing is, who is eligible for it and whether or not COVID-19 will have a positive or a negative effect on it, let’s take a look:

    Social housing can best be described as “homes that have rents pegged to local incomes, and provide a truly affordable, secure housing option for people across the country. Social homes are provided by housing associations (not-for-profit organisations that own, let, and manage rented housing) or a local council.”

Competition For Social Housing

    The main affect that the COVID-19 crisis has had, and will continue to have in the near future, is that competition for social housing has increased making it more difficult for those who truly need social housing to find a good home. This is where My Social Housing comes in.
