Economic impact tool

The Federation has launched a new tool for measuring the economic impact of housing association activities.

The tool employs economic impact multipliers and a local database to estimate the economic impact of building new affordable homes and day to day activities.

It provides area profiles which include turnover, housing stock and total impact of day to day operations by region, Local Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership.

The tool provides valuable data for use in leveraging funding and demonstrating value to stakeholders, and enables our members to answer questions such as:

  • What is the economic impact of developing 100 new affordable homes?
  • What is the economic impact of a £1m investment in affordable homes?
  • What is the economic impact of managing 1000 homes?

Further information on accessing and understanding the data is available from our Research team: contact Tristan Carlyon, Senior Analyst
