Challenge Criteria

The challenges we focus on must meet the following criteria:

  1. Scale of impact. Through the programme associations will be working together to help tackle the big systemic issues in housing. Problem areas should:

    a.   Affect a significant number of people
    b.   Have a significant impact on those they affect
    c.   Consideration should also be given to problems that are likely to get significantly more acute in the future if we don’t act now

  2. Collaboration. Through the programme associations will collaborate on shared challenges. As a result, we are looking for problem areas that:

    a.   Require collaboration and can’t be solved by one association alone

  3. Core business. Through the programme we want to make use of the collective resource and expertise of the sector to solve shared problems. As a result we are looking for problem areas that:

    a.   Relate to the core business of housing associations
