The social value of moving into social housing in Scotland: Year 2 impact report

Shelter Scotland, HACT

Understanding the social value of social housing is a 3-year primary data research project that commenced in Autumn 2021 as a partnership between Shelter Scotland and HACT, with support from a research consortium. The project aims to capture and measure the social value generated through the provision of new social tenancies in newly built, refurbished, and non-refurbished social housing stock in Scotland over a three-year time period. 

This report builds on previous publications for this project and presents findings from the analysis of all of the quantitative data provided by partner organisations up to the start of February 2024. It is intended to provide interim findings based in available data submitted by social housing residents and landlords to date.
