Should Social Housing be free?

Hi, it’s Catmad. Another question I though of was that should Social Housing be free? Because, really, Social Housing is for those with little money. What if you had no money? Should you be given a house for free? Are you entitled to a roof over your head, food, a warm bed? A place to sleep? I think so. What do you think?

    think that it is not free but you get it for free and pay the government back each week

  2. I think social housing shouldn’t be free but that they should still be cheaper then they are now. If it was free the council would be crippled financially and they wouldn’t get very much funding to make things in your area better. I think it should be lowered by about 20-30%.#FirstComment.

  3. I think social should be free for those who are ill or disabled and can’t find a suitable job.

    I think that they need more social housing for the homeless because it’s actually not fair that most people don’t have places to live.

    people are living in the streets this is unfair and disgusting how can we let the Homeless people die like this we do have charities for them but is not a lot to stop it. maybe we should make it free to save others

    social is important it would be nice if it was free,,but it cant happen to be honest i think that it shouldnt be expensive because mostly some of the tragic things that happen arent the peoples fault.

    millions of people are still waiting for a council house its not fair WE NEED MORE COUNCIL FLATS

    People pay higher rent because they are in social housing. We need more council flats it unfair!

    rent is good but there should be less private housing for more social housing

  11. Hi BNC! This is a really good question that shows great curiosity. I think that the safety and protection offered by free social housing is an obvious advantage. What might the problems be? Can you give reasons for why social housing is not free at the moment? Olivia

    @blackmagic13 I don’t think that it should be free as the money people give as rent (as well as taxes, donations and ext…) could go towards the pay for the building of new social houses. Though I think that the price could be lowed as (as catmad said) social houses are for people who are low on money.

    I don,t think it should be free because if you do have lots of money and you ask for social housing and then you have a old person that can not walk at all and you gave it to the person who had lots of money it would be unfair for the person who can not walk.

  14. I am totally with you, people are entitled to a roof over and the cost of social housing should be lowered. But it should depend on how much they earn.

    I do not agree because if the government dose not have the money then they will not be able to build any more homes for homeless people.

  16. I think social housing should be extremely cheap for those who cannot work so they could get small amounts of provisions from relatives.

  17. Well done for stating opinions, BNC! See if you can press ‘reply’ and comment back to each other. Tell the person whether you agree, or disagree and ask a question! It would be great to see a really developed discussion. Olivia

    Social housing should not be free because everyone needs to somehow pay and they already have it cheeper than usual

  19. I believe that homeless people should pay for their rent because if they didn’t pay then the government wouldn’t have enough money to build more social houses and betters blocks . I can also see where people are coming from if they say that it should be free because some poeple are physically unable to work and so therefore they cannot pay rent for their house.
