This report presents findings from two think tanks held in 2016 to analyse the impacts of changes to housing policy on social tenants and their landlords and to understand what help tenants think they need from their landlords and what they can do to help themselves. The author describes the organization into six main sections:
- getting to know each other and Trafford Hall;
- changing rules and spending cuts;
- impact of funding changes;
- what actions are landlords taking?
- opportunities for local action – tenants, and
- brainstorming session – top ideas to strengthen communities.
She provides case studies illustrating the impact of changes in housing policy and budget cuts, and the advantages of cooperation between social landlords and their tenants.
