Expert group created to advise on improvements to social housing sector

Experts from across the housing sector have been brought together to form a new expert panel to advise the government on the delivery of the social housing white paper.

The social housing white paper, published last year, outlines a wide-ranging package of reforms to improve standards for residents and enhance the regulation of the sector.

The reforms aim to deliver long-lasting and meaningful change, addressing safety issues, strengthening the complaints process, professionalising staff and rebalancing the relationship between residents and landlords.

Commenting, Minister for Rough Sleeping and Housing, Eddie Hughes said:

“Giving social housing residents a stronger voice and ensuring landlords raise standards is at the heart of our landmark reforms to transform the sector.

“The expert panel will help to ensure that we deliver on these reforms, bringing together people who will scrutinise our plans and guarantee we achieve the vision set out in the charter.”

The panel will meet four times over the next year to provide scrutiny and advice as the government implements the social housing white paper.

This follows extensive engagement with residents, housing associations and other stakeholders.

The social housing white paper outlines that every social housing resident should expect to:

  • Be safe in their home.
  • Know how their landlord is performing.
  • Have their complaints dealt with promptly and fairly.
  • Be treated with respect.
  • Have their voice heard by your landlord.
  • Have a good quality home and neighbourhood to live in.
  • Be supported to take their first step to ownership.

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
