You can help inform future social housing policy

It’s a crucial time in the social housing sector in England, with key policy developments and events including the Grenfell Tower tragedy all affecting the sector.

As part of the debate on the future of social housing, the Chartered Institute of Housing has launched a research project on Rethinking Social Housing.

This aims to examine some fundamental questions about the role, values and purpose of social housing in order to help shape its future.

The institute wants as many people who work, live or have an interest in social housing to take part in the project to give people the chance to explore these key questions.

UNISON is encouraging members to participate in the research.

Feedback will be anonymous, but it will help to inform recommendations to government and the wider housing sector, and start a wider debate on the future social housing. Contributions will also be used to form part of the institute’s response to the forthcoming government’s green paper on social housing.

The deadline for responses is 31 March 2018.
