UK Housing Trusts - History Website
Another really good site is National Housing Federation
Housing Trusts are often more accurately diescribed as Charitable housing association that providing social housing and regeneration activities. They can be found in nearly all UK cities and recently a number have made the small leap into the smaller UK towns and even a number of villages.
London has the largest number of Housing Associations. Housing associations are also known as Registered Social Landlords or Private Registered Providers of Social Housing.
Housing associations are the main providers of new not-for-profit housing in England, with around 3.5 million people living in housing association accommodation. They are also known as registered social landlords (RSLs) or Private Registered Providers of Social Housing (PRPSHs). Shelter is a good point of reference for nationwide coverage

Waiting lists are a part of Housing Trust life and being on a list is no guarantee of accomadation in the near future.
Once you apply, you'll be put on a waiting list and that could be it. Housing associations normally offer housing to people most suited to that particular property. You may have to wait a long time for a suitable property to become available. see Help and advice getting on the waiting lists
