Understanding the Challenges

Social housing providers are operating in a highly uncertain economic environment, posing numerous risks around financial viability, at the same time as having a heightened focus from regulators on delivering high quality services, and ensuring the safety of residents.

We understand these challenges. Our specialist housing team has extensive experience in providing tailored service offerings to the sector that can help social housing providers to achieve their strategic aims. We recognise the crucial role that social housing plays within society, and we pride ourselves on being a leading provider of professional services to this sector.

How we can help

We work with a large and diverse portfolio of social housing and care providers, including traditional housing associations, large scale voluntary transfers, arms length management organisations, for profit providers, and organisations with complex group structures. As well as internal and external audit, we provide a wide range of risk advisory, assurance and consultancy services to our clients.
