Social housing vacancies across Somerset are let through Homefinder Somerset which is a partnership of the Somerset local authorities - Mendip District Council, Sedgemoor District Council, South Somerset District Council, Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset District Council - and local Housing Associations. This means that people applying for social housing across Somerset only have to complete one application form and be assessed in accordance with the Homefinder Somerset Common Lettings Policy.

Although it will not increase the numbers of homes available, Homefinder Somerset shows the number of available homes and gives people more choice in where they wish to live.
