We can support you to move to another area, if you are a housing association or council tenant.
If you need to relocate you can apply to as many different councils as you want. However each council can decide how to prioritise the applications that they receive. They may give greater priority to people who have a local connection with the area that they cover. You will need to contact the council in the area that you wish to move, to find out more.
If you are a council or Housing Association tenant you may be able to swap properties with a tenant in the area where you want to live. For more information see the mutual exchange page.
