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.
