If you already live in a housing association property and want move to another area then there are various schemes which may be able to assist - but before you approach the following schemes speak to your housing association for more advice.
The HomeSwapper website may be able to assist housing association or Council tenants to find someone to swap with anywhere in the UK. Your local authority has partnered with HomeSwapper so you can use it for free as part of their Mutual Exchange Scheme. More information here:
Housing Moves is the Mayor of London's housing mobility scheme that allows tenants of London boroughs or housing associations to move outside their existing borough to a different part of London. It is run by the Greater London Authority and the majority of London boroughs and housing associations are participating.
The Seaside and Country Homes scheme is also run by the Mayor of London and provides bungalows and flats for council or housing association tenants over the age of 60 who want to move out of the city to a seaside or country location.
And you can contact your council's housing department if you are interested in registering for the Seaside and Country Homes scheme - go to our page on Local authority housing for contact details.
