The continuing shortage of affordable homes across the UK places a responsibility on housing providers to provide a return on the historic public investment in them by developing more new homes. We can help.
Our team of experts act as brokers, facilitators and project managers, assisting in business growth, change management and adapting to moving markets. We have a long-standing track record of facilitating board and executive level strategy events; board development programmes; high level interim management; strategies for growth and diversification; asset optimisation.
We use Business Plan Stress Testing to help housing providers to fully understand the multiple risks that they face. This will include risks to the service, commercial and financial operations of the business, identifying the optimal balance of investment and risk in each area, and assessing the contingencies required to safeguard the business in the long term.
By using Business Plan Stress Testing in this way, boards and executive teams can also provide assurance to key stakeholders in the sector – tenants and residents, investors and funders, the regulator and the public purse – that they are aware of the risks they face and have considered how to safeguard the social housing assets in the event that one or more of these risks crystallise.
Our extensive network enables us to bring together housing, treasury, property, business planning, and governance related advice to help providers ground their strategic choices in commercial and financial realities.
