How to improve housing mobility
DescriptionThis 'how to' guide sets out some of the ways in which local authorities and housing providers can support improved mobility in the social sector. This is important for a number of reasons:
- It could help housing providers to make better use of their stock, such as by reducing under occupation
- There is a demend for mobility in social housing from tenants that is not currently being met
- There is evidence that poor mobility in the social sector has negative impacts on the uptake of employment and training
- It could have wider benefits for the economy and for society.
