The Chartered Institute of Housing is the independent voice for housing and the home of professional standards

Tyfu Tai Cymru (TTC) is a five-year housing policy project which aims to provide insightful analysis and fill evidence gaps to support policy progression. Funded by the Oak Foundation, the project is managed by the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru and covers three main strands:

  • Building the right homes to meet demand
  • Making sure housing is always a priority for local government
  • Demonstrating housing’s role in keeping people well and healthy 

Why not attend our next Tyfu Tai Cymru regional events across Wales?

ONE Housing System Forum

Entering the second year of the project the Tyfu Tai Cymru (TTC) team are back – travelling all over Wales to engage directly with housing professionals to help shape the response to some of today’s most pressing challenges. This FREE forum will bring together housing professionals to:

  • Reflect on TTC's work and recommendations 
  • Build a joined-up view on how to achieve the outcomes identified in year one
  • Explore TTC's latest research on private renting and mental health

A full agenda will be released in the coming weeks, but with limited places don’t miss your chance to shape the impact of the TTC project.

Outstanding researchers step forward!

One of the issues that has been a real feature of conversations with housing professionals across Wales is the challenge of waiting lists for social housing. Many have suggested that at a local level waiting lists are a complicated area of policy/practice that are not often conducive to helping people understand how to gain access to social housing or meeting their housing needs more generally. Further to this, we know that there are many people on waiting lists who due to the nature of housing demand locally and their own individual circumstances may never be able to access a home via this route.

We’re seeking an outstanding researcher/organisation to undertake this work in partnership as we seek to uncover how we ensure consistency, fairness and transparency become uniform features of the system going forward.

The research specification can be viewed here. The closing date for applications is Wednesday September 4th.
