Non Profits: Social housing: planning effectively to meet the demand
This is our fourth breakfast briefing in our 2018 series. The briefings will be run by experts from our Non Profit unit and are designed to address the key issues facing those in the sector.
Government policy is in a state of considerable flux, making it very challenging for housing associations to plan effectively to meet the increasing demand for social housing. Whilst the post-2020 rent settlement returning to CPI+1% together with change of policy in respect of the LHA cap has been welcomed by the sector, housing associations remain under considerable pressure to deliver more for less.
The session will look at how the housing sector is addressing these challenges, including the use of private sale schemes and market rent schemes to generate the cash needed to invest in new social housing and how mergers in the sector are providing opportunities for economies of scale.
