Since we undertook our initial survey and published the results in our first Social Housing Barometer earlier this year the sector has continued to experience change and increasingly become the focus of government policy. What are your views on the challenges it’s facing and where do you think the strategic priorities lie for the future?

Take part in our survey and we will donate £10 to Shelter for the first 200 completed questionnaires. Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with poor housing or homelessness through their advice, support and legal services all over the country. You will also get a copy of the results when we publish our next Social Housing Barometer. It will take less than ten minutes to complete. Get started.

Social Housing Barometer

Our first edition sheds light on the current issues and trends within the social housing sector. The report explores topics including current sentiment, risks and strategic priorities in the market and shines the spotlight on the appetite for joint ventures with the private sector.

In May 2017, we surveyed housing associations across the UK, covering the full size spectrum and mainly those undertaking multiple activities. Despite the challenging external environment including the outstanding Brexit negotiations, our findings are encouraging and respondents appear confident about their ability to continue to provide housing to meet the UK’s increasing demand. 

Interestingly, 71% of housing associations surveyed say board and management confidence in the UK economy hasn’t changed over the last six months.

We do hope you find this edition an interesting read and as always, we would love to hear your views on the topics so do get in touch with Phil Cliftlands.
