What does the Future hold for Housing Associations?

Inside Housing and Hitachi Solutions brought together sector leaders to discuss what kind of future housing associations should be planning for.

What does the future hold for housing associations? This is the question that exercises the minds of the sector’s senior players as they look to plan ahead.

In the past 10 years there has already been much change, with many managing a growing mix of products such as affordable rent, shared ownership and market sale. Then there’s been the escalating housing crisis, a reduction in grant funding and the Brexit vote. Political attention led to the 1% rent cut that compelled associations to shave costs from their businesses.

What should today’s chief executives and senior managers be planning for? And what journey will they be taking the sector on?

Inside Housing and Hitachi Solutions gathered social housing leaders at the House of St Barnabas in London’s Soho to get their views on housing’s trajectory.
