The impact of our innovation programme
What’s coming up


In the light of the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent government advice, we are postponing the next stages of the Housing Futures programme.

We realise this will be disappointing and appreciate all the time and effort housing associations have put in to support the programme.

Working together to tackle housing’s biggest challenges has never been more important than it will be in the coming months and years ahead. We will keep reviewing matters and will update this page with further information as this situation progresses.

Housing Futures is the latest and most ambitious stage of our award-winning innovation programme. This is the biggest collaborative exercise ever undertaken by our sector, with housing associations across the UK coming together to learn by doing.

Our world is changing. Globalisation, rapid technological advances, an ageing population as well as a new political environment – all contribute to the unprecedented challenges we face as a sector.

If we are to respond and adapt to this changing world, then we need to think and do things differently. 

We’re building a greater culture of collaboration into our work as a sector; investing in our people, building new capabilities and finding new solutions to our shared strategic challenges.

Housing associations have always turned society's challenges into opportunities to improve people's lives, and through Housing Futures we can achieve this, together.

Over the last two years we have achieved so much. More than 450 people from over 250 housing associations have collaborated to create new solutions to some of housing's biggest challenges

At the start of this year we’ve hit the ground running with a new programme of activity.
