The social housing sector is operating in extremely challenging conditions - reduced rental incomes, cuts in government funding, the extension of right to buy, welfare reform and deregulation have all required changes to working practices.

Housing Associations have to manage this cultural change as cost-effectively as possible. Communicating new and updated policy information to employees, suppliers and partners helps people to deliver services appropriately to often highly vulnerable social tenants.
