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 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 we seek a clear role for social housing in UKSPF.   

The UK 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 - with over 450 members to date.

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 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.
