Before the 1980s, there were millions of Council houses across the UK. These were owned by local councils, providing low rent accommodation to individuals and families that could not afford to buy or rent privately. When the 80s hit, the ‘Right to Buy’ scheme was introduced. This allowed people to buy their Council House at a percentage of the market value. Over a million Council Houses were sold within 10 years. This has led to a shortage of houses for people on low incomes or on benefits. As a result, the government has introduced various affordable and social housing schemes. Seems like a perfect time to learn more about affordable and social housing then, doesn’t it?

This course will outline things like:
