Social Housing Procurement Zone

There are 4 million households in the UK’s social rented sector, with more than half of those (2.5 million) controlled by housing associations, indicating the scale of the market in this ever-relevant sector.

Today, more than ever, procurement has a vital role to play in supporting and strengthening the social housing sector, and for all local authorities, housing associations and suppliers involved, tight control over budgets and resources remains a key priority, along with delivering on social value, sustainability and community engagement.

Supported by Clarion Housing Group, Peabody Trust, The Riverside Group, and Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing, the Social Housing Procurement Zone will play host to a range of training and skills sessions advising buyers and suppliers on the best procurement processes and frameworks to follow, and how to deliver social value and other benefits whilst keeping to regulations and budgets.
