We established and Chair Housing and Employment Taskforce to bring key bodies in housing, employment services and government together to focus on a core issue: support for employment across social housing resident bases through and beyond Covid-19.

The Taskforce has shone a light on core employment issues, developed the award winning national ‘Opportunity Guarantee’ campaign and influenced the Plan for Jobs announced by the Chancellor.


Membership includes the National Housing Federation, the National Federation of ALMOs, HACT/the Centre, ERSA, the Institute for Employability Professionals, the Institute for Employment Studies, the Learning and Work Institute, Youth Futures Foundation (and the Youth Employment Group) and officials from the DWP and DLUHC. We continue to work through the Taskforce to hold the Government to account on their recovery plans and to ensure that social housing takes a central role in delivering on them across our communities.
