Social housing

Social housing is the provision of housing at affordable rates for those whose needs cannot be met by the commercial housing market. 

Housing can be provided by the local authority, registered social landlords or other not for profit organisations, as well as through other schemes such as the provision of affordable housing as part of new housing developments. 

Social housing is allocated in accordance with need. 

Registered social landlords are regulated by the Welsh Ministers.
