Our impact

At the NHF, we exist to support our housing association members to deliver their social purpose. We shape national policy, enable collaboration, and share insight across the sector.

As we launch our new three year business strategy, we’ve also taken a look back at the impact we had over the course of our previous 2019-2022 strategy. Here you’ll find some of the key ways we supported housing associations and their communities during an incredibly challenging time.

We are a not-for profit organisation with social purpose – each year we use our income to influence, campaign and engage on behalf of the social housing sector. Our income comes from our membership fees and from the events, publications and services we offer. You can find out more about our finances in our finance review.
