We’ve published our response, on behalf of the sector, along with a seven-point summary of our key recommendations.
The Green Paper covers a range of issues that are central to the housing association mission, which is why it has been essential that we submit a considered, constructive and ambitious response.
You can download our response in full, or scroll down to read the seven key points and recommendations.
Through our Green Paper events, chief executive forums, webinar and written submissions, we have heard from almost 400 members, and incorporated this feedback into our response. We also hosted a tenant engagement event, and have worked closely with A Voice for Tenants, to solicit residents’ views. This range of diverse views has enabled us to produce a strong sector submission.
Our Chief Executive, Kate Henderson, provides a one-minute overview in the video below.
Our response sets out a number of recommendations for addressing the challenges and questions explored in the Green Paper. These include:
The conversation about how to address the challenges and questions in the Green Paper will continue long after we’ve submitted our response, and we will continue to work in partnership with the government and the regulator to bring forward our recommendations and the change we think is necessary.
We will take this work forward through our Together with Tenants project. We want to get it right, so it has lasting impact and supports the culture change you’ve told us is so important.
