How the National Housing Federation (NHF) will support smaller housing associations in the best way possible to serve local communities and build the homes this country needs.
The NHF’s mission is to create an environment in which every single one of our members can thrive and deliver on their social purpose.
Smaller housing associations have always had – and will always have – an incredibly important role to play in our housing offer to the nation.
Our new offer to smaller housing associations sets out how the NHF will support smaller housing associations through more tailored resources, better networking opportunities, and a greater voice in our influencing work.
This offer is the result of extensive consultations with smaller housing associations. We worked closely with our National Smaller Housing Association Network, and surveyed all chief executives of housing associations with fewer than 1,000 units. The offer has been refreshed and enhanced in 2021, following further feedback from our smaller housing association members.
We hope it will form the basis for how we work together, and how the NHF supports smaller housing associations in the best way possible to serve our local communities and build the homes this country needs.
You can get involved in this work by joining our National Smaller Housing Association Network, which supports the NHF in developing and testing new policy ideas, engages smaller housing associations in our work, informs our responses to the government and other stakeholders and facilitates collaboration and information sharing between smaller housing association members.
The Network meets virtually and is chaired by Raife West, Chief Executive of Havant Housing Association. Get in touch to find out more about the group and how to join.
