Spending Review 2020 - Briefing for housing associations

02 December 2020

The 2020 Spending Review set out the government’s spending plans for 2021/22 and focused on measures to tackle coronavirus, create jobs, strengthen public services and support the "levelling-up" agenda. It contained a number of announcements relevant to housing associations, including measures that the NHF called for in our submission ahead of the Spending Review. The briefing is structured under the following headings::

  1. Delivering a new generation of affordable homes.
  2. Providing skills and jobs to get people into work.
  3. Kick-starting a retrofit revolution.
  4. Levelling up the economic opportunity across the country.
  5. Improving outcomes in public services – including housing support and care, and homelessness.

This briefing starts with an at-a-glance summary, and then covers each of these announcements in turn, including the NHF response.
