Implications of the Social Housing Green Paper and VfM

The highly anticipated green paper on social housing was released on Tuesday 14th August 2018 and within it are some key implications for the social housing sector.

A significant implication is the increased responsibility of the Regulator: required to command annual publication of housing providers' KPIs. This will impact how social landlords report performance and the quality of the data that supports it. 


Altair have published a useful summary on the contents of the green paper, which can be found by clicking on this link:

It has been proposed that there is an emphasis on uniform metrics of service delivery performance, which may impact access to grants. In light of this, Altair's Director of Finance Solutions, Joseph Carr, has written an explanation around the need to demonstrate Value for Money (VfM) and what boards need to know.
