The supply of new affordable housing continues to be high on the Government's agenda. Consequently, the sector faces a number of challenges from establishing 'mega associations', streamlining procurement and housing management, delivering the building programme and working with the private sector, to bringing housing stock up to the 'decent homes' standard.
Our housing team frequently performs specialist work for the Homes and Communities Agency, the Department for Communities and Local Government and the National Housing Federation. Our network of contacts with other social housing service providers also enables us to draw in external specialist resources in legal, training and other specialisms when required.
