Westminster Social Policy Forum

Next steps for social housing policy in England - supply, standards and priorities for policy

May 2018

The conference focused on the future for social housing policy in England, and examined key issues expected to be covered in the Social Housing Green Paper - including the quality of homes, service management, tenant’s rights, homelessness, and the role for social housing in supporting local economies and public services.

Further sessions discussed the potential implications of the Mayor of London’s Draft Housing Strategy for social housing in the Capital and what more might be done to improve standards and the safety of social housing - in the context of the inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire and the government’s consultation on building safety.

Attendees also considered the further steps that might be taken to better meet the housing requirements of vulnerable groups.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
