That’s why theConsortium has been working with ShefeldHallam University and seven of our Memberorganisations to research the economic impactof housing organisations in the North. Througha detailed survey of our Members, we’veestablished a comprehensive evidence base.
ur work looks at the contribution made to theeconomy by housing associations, ALMOs andcouncils with housing stock across the threenorthern regions.
The North’s housing sector recogniseswe must demonstrate our economicimpact.
This report does just that.
It considers the jobs and value created by day-to-day activity such as housing managementand repairs and maintenance as well as housebuilding itself.This document summarises our ndings, andI hope you’ll agree they’re impressive. Withthe right operating environment, housingorganisations could do even more to providehomes and jobs in the North.Over the coming years, the Consortium will beusing the evidence we have gathered to makethe case for the positive impact our sector hason homes, jobs, communities and economiesacross the North of England.This document provides a summary of ourndings – please access the complete reportvia our website at;
