Recession has changed attitudes of housing organisations

The number of housing organisations concerned by the recession has increased 30 per cent since October, with one in four now feeling the effects. Since the last survey six months ago - ‘before the recession really took hold’ - housing and regeneration projects have come to a standstill, redundancies have been announced and business models have been radically adapted. However, skills, knowledge and training remain high on the agenda and greater partnership working between public and private sectors has been established.
