A warm welcome to Magenta, who have signed up to support the development of data standards for resident feedback and customer complaints.
A collective of organisations has come together to release the following statement about Black History Month:
Between March and July 2020, UK social housing organisations representing 41% of the sector provided over £1,150,000 in financial assistance, provided almost 140,000 residents with advice and guidance, and made over 710,000 welfare calls.
Covid 19 could offer a once in a lifetime opportunity for housing associations to deliver more with their communities, change how homes are built and improve services with residents, according to PlaceShapers’ and HACT’s Places After The Pandemic report.
As part of Housing 2020, HACT have contributed to “The Future of Housing”, a programme produced by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and ITN Productions Industry News which explores the challenges and triumphs of the housing sector today.
HACT launches a roadmap for the future of social value in social housing.
The Impact of Social Housing: Economic, Social, Health and Wellbeing was written by UK Collaborative Centre of Housing Evidence (CaCHE) and HACT for the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA), Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), Public Health Scotland, and the Rural and Islands Housing Associations Forum (RIHAF).
