Housing points video

Confused about points?  Figure out how to get points if you're on the waiting list for housing.  

Increasing your points

This video explains how the housing points system works. You only get points for certain things. You can get points for

  • being homeless
  • living in bad housing
  • physical health problems that mean you can't do certain things
  • certain problems in your home or area
Housing officers can only give you more points in certain cases. We've put all these cases on our housing points list.

Read over our housing points list. Compare it to the points you have. Ask your housing officer for a written breakdown of your points if you do not know which points you have.

Contact our helpline if you want help or advice about points.
