This research examined written strategies from 128 housing organisations, and conducted surveys and interviews with 163, to explore some key areas of practice, including:
- whether addressing poverty is part of their mission, in principle or in practice;
- the impact on poverty of decisions over where and what to build, including the use of Affordable Rented housing;
- rent setting;
- measures to increase tenants’ incomes and reduce fuel bills and other costs;
- allocation systems and policies concerning who can access different types of housing.
