Housing Needs

The UK is experiencing a profound housing crisis and the need for additional social housing and improved conditions has never been greater. Housing need refers to the existing deficit of households that are unable to access accommodation that meet certain regulatory standards.

With homelessness an increasing problem with year-on-year increases, the need for expert, specialist staff within the housing services sector has never been greater. In England alone, the number of people sleeping rough exceeded 4,600 – jumping from just over 4,100 in 2016 – with these numbers only expected to increase.
