This project will involve a mix of desk-based and field research to provide a baseline sense and a more detailed empirical consideration of the economic and social impacts of housing associations in Scotland. The project seeks to:
- demonstrate the impact of housing associations and co-operatives in Scotland in order to raise the profile of the difference the sector is making to people’s lives
- strengthen the sector’s position about the urgent need to invest in more social housing
- complement ongoing research on the demand for affordable housing post-2021
The outputs will include a desk-based review, social impact analysis (produced by HACT) and four case studies of providers across Scotland.
