    Hi 

    You need to referfir a care needs assessment and a ot will come and assess your housing needs and do a report which if recommended they will send ti council and thus should move you up the list 

    Another option could be to write to your local mp not always on board but some are 

    Or could you private rent

    I’ve just had an Occupational therapist home/needs assessment and they have sent a report to the local council recommending level access, luckily our council manage all of their own housing stock and do a (Removed by moderator, profanity) good job of it, most people in my area tend to avoid housing association property as they are a nightmare to deal with. But it will all depend on your area and feedback from other council/home association tenants.
