As many of you will know, Jobsgopublic recently formed a working partnership with the National Housing Federation. This partnership is the latest initiative in our commitment to supporting the UK housing sector, providing members of the National Housing Federation with highly effective, value for money recruitment solutions.
As part of this partnership, we are working with the National Housing Federation to provide regular updates on the key headlines from the UK housing sector. Here’s what has caught our eye this month
– A number of news outlets have been reacting to the ‘damning’ National Audit Office report on Universal Credit. The report claims that the £1.9bn welfare system could end up costing more than the system already in place. Find out more here.
– Last week saw the one-year anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy on June 14th. A series of vigils and commemorations were held in memory of the 72 people who died. The tower, along with numerous other buildings across London, was illuminated green at 00:54 on Thursday morning to mark the time that the fire was first reported. Read more here.
– A new report released by Crisis states that homelessness could end within a decade if the Government were to take the right action. The research shows that 100,500 social homes need to be built each year for the next 15 years. Find the full report here.
– The National Housing Federation’s Home Truths report has featured in a number of publications. This has been particularly focused on the revelation that Londoners need a 283% pay increase in order to be able to afford to buy a home in the capital. Read the report here.
This is just a snapshot of the variety of things taking place within the sector at one of the busiest and most high-profile points in its history.
