Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in 2017, the government established the Building Safety Programme to ensure the safety of people and their homes. Housing associations have worked hard to assess safety risks and take urgent action to remediate buildings where needed.

This has included identifying, removing and replacing dangerous category 3 ACM cladding – the type used on Grenfell Tower – as well as identifying and remediating other types of cladding and other safety risks. Housing associations have also put urgent temporary measures in place to ensure residents are safe before and during remediation work.
