We are undertaking a marketing campaign to encourage applicants to apply for Social Housing on Anglesey.
When thinking about social housing and the dreaded ‘waiting list’, what springs to mind is those numerous national headlines…
- ‘More than a million on social housing waiting lists’
- ‘More than 100,000 families waiting more than a decade for social housing, figures show’
Because of these headlines, less and less people have been applying for social housing on Anglesey.
It’s a common belief that there is ‘no point in applying, as I’ll be waiting forever’. This may not be the case, especially if you are willing to consider more than one area and a number of property types.
We are keen to hear from the following two groups of people who could qualify for social housing who may think they wouldn’t qualify to go on the register –
- those in private rented accommodation on Anglesey with 5 years or more local connection to the island
- people aged 55 years and over who are interested in homes specifically reserved for older people who have 5 years or more local connection to the island
If you are supporting anyone who is interested in applying for Social Housing, please encourage them to start the process by calling our dedicated Customer Services Team on 01248 75 22 00 / firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important to note, that we do not have homes standing vacant. The aim of the campaign is to ensure members of the public are aware of their options in the Social Housing sector.
