The Government has completed its annual report on risk in the social housing sector. The report summarised what it considers to be the main risks to the sector currently and includes recommendations on steps social housing providers can take to manage those risks. As expected, the report acknowledges the continued uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic. Energy efficiency and zero-carbon commitments also feature, alongside the Social Housing White Paper.
...the public health and economic outlook remains unclear, and providers continue to operate in an intensely uncertain environment. The economic recovery to date remains fragile, with significant ongoing disruption to supply chains and the labour market resulting in high-cost inflation and ongoing shortages of materials and skills.
