Register for social housing

Anyone can apply for social housing. However, due to the high demand on social housing and the lack of social housing properties available, only those with a high or urgent need to move will be given a priority band. If you are awarded a priority band you will be able to express interest in advertised accommodation.

If you meet the criteria to register you will be placed on the inactive register and offered accommodation if a property can’t be let to people on the active register.

We assess each application against the Medway Allocations Policy and will give emergency or urgent priority if someone’s life or health is at risk if they don’t move immediately. For more information read our allocations policy.
