Social Housing

We work closely with housing associations and local authorities responsible for managing their housing stock, helping them develop the skills and knowledge required to deliver successful, high-quality retrofit.

We also support them in creating the skilled workforce they need and in achieving both economic and social benefits to their local communities.

Improving Social Housing Across the UK

We have extensive experience working with and supporting those managing social housing in the UK –
whether that’s landlords, councils or housing associations.

How We Work with Social Housing

The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) is a £3.8 billion programme to upgrade thousands of homes belonging to housing associations and local authorities across the UK.

We work with these organisations through:

Organisational Competence

We help benchmark a social landlord’s readiness to deliver large-scale, high-quality retrofit.

Workforce Development

We create organisational development plans to help build internal capability, training the retrofit professionals and trades needed to a high standard.

Compliance and Quality Assurance

We undertake PAS 2035 health checks to assess whether housing providers are on the right path.


Low energy-efficient housing means there are homes that are cold, damp and expensive to run. Inefficient homes are more prone to damage caused by factors, such as damp caused by poor ventilation.

By not tackling these issues through a whole-house retrofit approach, the ongoing costs of repair and maintenance works can run into thousands of pounds per property.

What’s at Stake

The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) presents a huge opportunity for housing providers to bring its stock up to standard and better serve their residents.

Over the next 10 years, £3.8 billion is projected to be unlocked to pay for large-scale retrofit projects. We are committed to helping registered providers and local authorities to fully leverage this government support, for the benefit of their residents.
