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.

Tyfu Tai Cymru events

We have been traveling all over Wales to engage directly with housing professionals to help shape the response to some of today’s most pressing challenges. Read more about the insights gathered through these events in our Housing Voices reports. 



Work with us...
We're seeking a skilled researcher to shine a light on the role housing advice has when people are discharged from hospital. Do you have a proven track record of delivering high-quality research? Do you have a desire to improve how services better meet people's needs?
Allocating social housing
Our latest research led by Joy Kent and Elin Brock focuses on the systems of allocating social housing. The findings shine a light on the inconsistencies in different areas and calls for changes in the interest of making the process fairer and more transparent for the public.
Joining the dots
Our latest survey of local government housing professionals revealed the pressure many people feel in their roles where the challenge of delivering more social and affordable homes is combined with competing priorities. Respondents had a clear desire to be ambitious but workload, funding, and capacity act as barriers.
