As the UK has left the EU and the transition period has ended, new funding from the EU has ceased. In order to replace it, the Government has pledged to set up the UKSPF to “reduce inequalities between communities”.  

We know that many social housing sector organisations have benefitted from utilising EU funding, particularly ESF and ERDF, and will be seeking new alternative Government funding from 2022. 

The Prospectus: Communities that Work is leading the social housing sector response to UKSPF and has now published a Prospectus for Government to demonstrate the value and impact of working with the social housing sector in the development and delivery of the Fund.  Communities that Work drives the dissemination of this Prospectus to the Government on the UKSPF.   The Prospectus shines a light on the high quality, high impact work employment support work undertaken by the social housing sector and highlights the unique opportunity which UKSPF affords the Government to work with our sector and level-up opportunities for all of our communities.

You can view the prospectus and show your support for our calls by adding your name here.

The Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) Housing Network (HN): Communities that Work founded the SPF HN in summer 2021. The Network’s foundation membership is drawn from our own membership and from the Kickstart Housing Network and it’s open to all in the social housing sector to join. The Network is focussed on placing social housing at the heart of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and runs an online communications and networking platform for the social housing sector to come together on all matters relating SPF.    The regular Network meetings are  an opportunity to share intelligence, raise the profile of social housing sector in SPF, and show our capacity to collaborate and deliver.
