Housing Plus Academy

The Housing Plus Academy is a partnership between the National Communities Resource Centre at Trafford Hall, the London School of Economics, 18 leading social housing providers, the National Housing Federation, the Chartered Institute of Housing, the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, and the University of Manchester.

Since November 2015 we have been bringing people together from across the housing world to take part in knowledge exchange and participative learning. The Academy tackles burning problems affecting both housing associations and local authority landlords today, particularly welfare reform, financial pressure, energy saving, work and skills, community enterprise, and resilience.

The Housing Plus Academy aims to reflect the diversity of social housing, its staff, tenants and customers. We particularly welcome representatives from ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities, all ages and particularly younger working age tenants. We encourage Tenant Management Organisations, Community-Based Housing Associations, Community Land Trusts, tenant co- operatives and smaller housing associations to join.
