Social housing is provided by housing associations or Oldham Council.

It exists to help people who can’t afford to rent or buy a home privately. These homes are let to households who are most in need. 

How to apply

To apply for social housing, you need to complete our Housing Options Registration Form.

You need to provide documents to prove your identity and eligibility.

It can take up to 12 weeks for us to process your application.

How are properties allocated?

We look at a number of different things in order to prioritise those most in need including:

  • Health issues
  • Medical needs
  • Severe overcrowding
  • Safety concerns
  • Unsuitability of current housing 

The full details of eligibility and how priority is decided are included in the Oldham Council Allocations Scheme:
