New Generation Scheme

The New Generation Scheme can help anyone over 18 who is an Islington resident living with their family in a social rented home.

Who It Is For

The scheme is open to the sons and daughters of council, housing association and private sector tenants living in the borough. This scheme is only open to applicants who require studio, one or two bedroom properties and who have lived in the borough for at least 3 of  the last 5 years. You need to prove your address for each of the last five years. For each year you must provide two documents proving your address, from two difference sources (for example, not two gas bills). The proof must correspond with the address information given on the application form.

We will give priority to those applicants who are overcrowded and you must also meet the general conditions of the allocations policy.

In exceptional circumstances applicants with a severe long term disability may qualify for the scheme irrespective of the tenure of their parents or guardian and will be awarded an additional 20 points.

How It Works

If you are single, you can apply for a one-bedroom or studio property. If you have children, you can apply for two-bedroom accommodation. To apply for the scheme, you will need to complete a Housing Register Application Form. Once your application has been processed, we will let you know if you have been successful.

If You Are Disabled

If you need help to fill in the application form please call in to your local housing office or contact the Housing Options team. Please let us know if you have an impairment on the form as this may affect your priority for housing. Please also tell us your access and communication needs so we can provide an appropriate service and communicate with you in your preferred format.

Other Languages

If you require help to complete the application form with an interpreter, please contact your local housing office or the Housing Options Team.
