Our response to the APPG on Housing and Social Mobility
01 Jul 2020
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Social Mobility (APPG) was founded in 2020 to champion social housing providers that support tenants and residents to secure sustainable livelihoods.
Housing associations play a vital role in building communities that work and this APPG brings together MPs and Peers from across all political parties and is co-chaired by Peter Aldous MP and Liz Twist MP.
The Inquiry into Housing and Employment will bring together insights and testimonies from the housing sector experts and residents from across England. The evidence will help shape the solutions and be part of its final report which will be launched in October 2020. This Inquiry is one of the first in Parliament to respond to the joint issues facing social housing and employment against the backdrop of the coronavirus crisis and its colossal impact on the economy, jobs and services.
We are proud to be involved in the Communities that Work APPG on Housing and Social Mobility. As a housing association we support someone into paid work every day of the year and providing skills and services to improve people’s chances of securing new jobs has never been more important.
