Coronavirus

We’re doing everything we can to make sure our housing association members are informed, connected and heard during this challenging time.

Working with our members, we’ve developed three key policy priorities for the sector:

  • Keeping residents safe.
  • Protecting residents’ incomes.
  • Keeping vital services running.

This has involved working closely with the government and other stakeholders on a range of urgent issues, from clarifying guidance for supported housing settings, to working with partners to prioritise testing and vaccine rollout. You can read more about our priorities in our policy briefing.
