How to get a Council House

With the UK’s social housing in crisis, this documentary series follows councils dealing with lack of properties and too many people in need of homes at affordable rents.

Each week, the series tells the stories of contributors and council homes and reveals who is successful and who loses out in the bidding battle for these select few homes. With access to homeless persons’ units and lettings teams, How To Get A Council House also showcases the day to day lives of the workers tasked with implementing the system and the stories of the people they deal with.
