About the survey

A group of housing associations has asked us (HQN) to develop a way to help housing providers decide their future shape and structure.

The government's decision to impose a 1% rent reduction on the social housing sector is making housing associations think about efficiency savings through mergers (joining another organisation), partnership working (sharing service provision with other organisations) and acting more commercially in the way they provide homes (building homes for sale on the open market as well as affordable rented housing).

We want to understand how tenants and residents might fit in to the decisions that housing associations make in relation to these possible changes.

With this in mind we would be grateful if you could share your views by completing this survey.

We recommend you read the 'form follows function' discussion document before completing the survey. You can view it here.
