Consultation on joining other housing associations
5 July 2016
The Government's decision to impose a 1% rent reduction on the social housing sector is making housing associations like us, think about efficiency savings through mergers (joining another organisation), partnership working (sharing service provision with other organisations) and acting more commercially in the way they provide homes (building homes for sale on the open market as well as affordable rented housing).
We are part of a group of housing associations that has asked the Housing Quality Network to develop a way to help housing providers decide their future shape and structure. With this in mind they have launched a survey to better understand how tenants and residents might fit in to the decisions that housing associations make in relation to these possible changes.
Please take some time to complete this survey, which is supported by a ‘Form follows function’ discussion document that gives some background to this approach. You can view it here.
The deadline for the survey is Friday 29th July. Thank you.
