Explanation:
Tak to mniej więcej wygląda:

The National Housing Federation is the body that represents the independent social housing sector. We have around 1400 non-profit housing organisations currently in our membership and it is growing all the time. Between them they own or manage around 1.8 million homes.

Social housing is a general term including rented housing owned by local authorities, housing associations, housing co-ops and Housing Action Trusts. Although the term is now in some disfavour, no alternative has yet emerged.

What is a housing association?
Housing associations are independent, not-for-profit organisations and provide homes for people in housing need. They are now the country's major providers of new homes for rent. Many also run shared ownership schemes to help people who cannot afford to buy their own homes outright. Over recent years a number of local authorities have transferred all or part of their housing stock to independent social landlords. These organisations are often referred to as Large Scale Voluntary Transfer organisations or Local Housing Companies.
