Scoping study: the impact of welfare reforms on housing associations

Welfare reforms introduced since 2010 in the United Kingdom represent a major challenge for housing associations. This report presents the key findings of a scoping study which has explored their impact on associations and reviewed the existing evidence base on the
subject. The report is an output from the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE), which was launched in 2017.

The centre, which is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, Arts and Humanities Research Council and Joseph Rowntree Foundation, is a multidisciplinary partnership between academia, housing policy and
practice. Over the course of the five-year programme, CaCHE researchers will produce evidence and new research which will contribute to tackling the UK’s housing problems at a national, devolved, regional, and local level. CaCHE is undertaking 12 research projects in its first year. This report is one of the first outputs from this work.
