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.

Decarbonising the Private Rented Sector in Wales

Research by Tyfu Tai Cymru (part of CIH Cymru) has found that there’s a massive funding gap in terms of supporting the Private Rented Sector to reach net-zero by 2050.

The report calls on the Welsh Government to develop a long-term strategy for energy efficiency, fuel poverty and decarbonisation of the private rented sector (PRS) which integrates with broader objectives surrounding housing quality, fire safety and landlord licensing.

Mae ymchwil newydd gan Tyfu Tai Cymru (rhan o CIH Cymru) wedi datgelu bwlch ariannu enfawr o ran cefnogi'r Sector Rhentu Preifat i gyrraedd sero-net erbyn 2050.

Mae'r adroddiad yn galw ar Lywodraeth Cymru i ddatblygu strategaeth hirdymor ar gyfer effeithlonrwydd ynni, tlodi tanwydd a datgarboneiddio'r sector rhentu preifat, gan integreiddio ag amcanion ehangach sy'n ymwneud ag ansawdd tai, diogelwch tân a thrwyddedu landlordiaid




Hospital discharge
With the COVID-19 pandemic having a profound impact on the NHS we undertook new research in partnership with CARP Collaborations and Gana Consulting, to highlight the role good quality housing advice can play in helping people leave hospital safely and remain well at home.
In collaboration with social housing providers across North Wales, we undertook a comprehensive analysis (including a survey of 300+ tenants) to find out about the barriers that exist to help people move home and what could make a difference - with an emphasis on helping people living in homes that are too large, or overcrowded housing.
Joining the dots 3
Our third and final survey of local government housing professionals reveals the impact of the relentless pressure on staff since the COVID-pandemic. Respondents told us of their ambitions but workload, funding, and capacity act as barriers.
