  5. Hi there. In my opinion, I think housing really means buildings or structures that individuals and their family may live in that meet certain federal regulations. Different housing situations vary for individuals and may depend on age, family, and geographic location.

    The idea of that is great because the people who don’t know about social housing can learn something new.

    In my school we did a session about social housing and I’ve learnt a lot!
    This topic is very good because children like me will learn a lot more about social housing.

    I am really looking forward to this topic. Since I have a BIG feeling this is going to be ‘GR8!’. I do, however, know now, that people who don’t earn that much money from their job, who cannot own their own house or who cannot get one from a Private Landlord, won’t be guaranteed a house/flat because since in the time of Margaret Thatcher. The laws were that if you lived in a Social House for long enough, you might even get to own it on a reduced rate, so that is also why councils have a HUGE waiting list for people in need of houses/flats and those who ARE homeless!

  28. Social housing has loads of links to it which is why it is an interesting topic.

    social housing is a good issue to be looking at this term

    I think Social Housing is a useful way for those with less money to secure a roof over their head. However, there are some problems. For example:
    Some people have specific needs that must be fulfilled
    Some people don’t even have enough money to pay even the lowest rent
    Some people have to stay in an area for work. If they don’t they may not get another job and will soon run out of money.
    So although there are definite benefits of Social Housing, how significant are these problems? What can we do to solve them?

  31. This sounds like a really interesting issue. It is incredibly hard to decide what the best thing to do is. I live in an area where there is lots of social housing being knocked down and I wonder where the tenants will go.

  33. At first I thought social housing was quite and odd topic; it really helps you, and gets your brain thinking!
    By KangarooKraze!

  34. I think it is an important issue that appears in day to day life which should be spoken more often in order to find amicable solutions at present. Whether anyone is young or old, both groups are vulnerable; having a suitable shelter is a fundamental human right. I believe that there should be more social housing outside of London because London is extremely congested. Also, the government should make better living standards outside London. For an example: more job opportunities; better pay; spacious houses and good schools are some of the concerns. If these things are in place, People who are vulnerable could benefit more with social housing by moving outside of London to live a better life. 🙂

    • Thanks for your comment, Goldfish27. This is really well structured, showing great storytelling skills. You’ve suggested that people should move outside of London where there is more social housing. What negatives can you see to this solution? Thinking about the downsides of your own opinion will increase your scepticism.

    I think that people should reclaim empty houses because if no one is living in them it is wasting space while the government are just building more houses.The government should refurbish the houses so it is up to standard then people should move in.Moving people out of the area will cause more problems because there may not be as much help in London as in the place they are moved to because there may not be hospitals nearby in an emergency.
