Virtual Workshop | Build more social homes: A plan for post-pandemic recovery

Date: Thursday 17 December 2020

Time: 12-1pm

Speaker: Polly Neate, CEO, Shelter

The pandemic has shown us the importance of a safe and secure home like never before. Yet now, with the fallout of COVID-19, millions of private renters are facing the threat of homelessness, with council house waiting lists expected to almost double in 2021.  Meanwhile, thousands of families are enduring lockdown in temporary accommodation.

There’s no doubt that the need to build more social housing is greater than ever.

This virtual workshop will provide an insight into Shelter’s ‘Building Our Way Out’ report, which sets out recommendations for how the government can kick-start the economy, create jobs and level up housing inequality by building more decent social rented homes that people on low incomes can afford.

Following a presentation from Shelter CEO, Polly Neate, there will be an opportunity for feedback and discussion on the pressures and challenges faced by housing associations in delivering homes for social rent and how as a sector we can work with the government to build more.
