Communities Together
Coronavirus testing


We’re doing everything we can to make sure our housing association members are informed, connected and heard. 

Working with our members, we’ve developed three key policy priorities for the sector:

  • Keeping residents safe.
  • Protecting residents’ incomes.
  • Keeping vital services running, including care and support schemes.

This has involved working closely with the government and other stakeholders on a range of urgent issues, from clarifying guidance for supported housing settings, to working with partners to prioritise testing and vaccine rollout. You can read more about our priorities in our policy briefing.

You can find out more about our coronavirus work through the updates below.
