The Housing Economist is about changing perceptions of social housing and its purpose in the wider economy.

The purpose is to carry out research with the use of coproduction to find new ways of delivery housing services and productions to all sectors of the housing market.

We also hope to provide an interactive platform for discussion to take place between all interested parties, whether you are a tenant or a landlord, we want to hear your view’s, regardless if you are in the private and public sector.

In the first instance, we will be looking to carry out research on social housing by using coproduction methods.

Also we will be looking to engage social tenants in the current debate about the future of social housing on how it should be delivered and to whom it should be for.

Also looking to gain their perspectives on:

  • Welfare reform
  • Changes in social tenancies
  • New affordable rent regime
  • Who lives in social housing?

We are open to any research request, please go to the research page to complete the form.

Please provide a brief description of what you are looking for and the timescales that you will be requiring us to work to.

We look forward to working with you.
