Building safety

Nothing is more important to housing associations than the safety of the people living in their homes.

After the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower in June 2017, housing associations moved quickly to ensure their own buildings were safe and offered support, shelter and information to their communities.

The tragedy at Grenfell must never be allowed to happen again. Housing associations are now urgently remediating buildings with safety issues and helping to shape and deliver a new system for keeping buildings safe.

We’re calling for clarity, leadership and funding from the government to make sure this essential work happens as fast as possible.

Building safety and coronavirus

The NHF and our members are committed to ensuring the health and safety of residents, which includes continuing our important work on building safety. 

While housing associations across the country are working to manage and mitigate the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on their services, staff and residents, the government has also made it clear that making buildings safe, including progressing with remediation work, remains a priority. 

We will continue to engage with our members, the government and stakeholders on key building safety issues. You'll find the latest updates below.
