The UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE - see below) and the Chartered Institute of Housing are investigating the impact of welfare reforms on social housing providers within England. This survey builds on the initial findings from scoping research. We are seeking the views of a range of different housing providers on the relationship between welfare reform and access to social housing. These findings will be used to support housing providers in responding to welfare reform.

Please help us by completing this survey. We are seeking the views of senior managers, policy officers or staff who have experience of the impact of welfare reform within England.

For the purposes of this survey, we are focusing on the impact of welfare reforms introduced after 2010. In particular, Universal Credit, the Benefit Cap, the Benefit Freeze, Size Criteria (or Bedroom Tax), and the one per cent Rent Reduction. We are focusing on general needs social and affordable rented housing only.
If you are unable to respond, please pass this survey on to a relevant colleague.
This survey should take around 15 to 25 minutes to complete.
