What work have you done to make sure small and medium sized developers, non-profits and other SMEs have access to advice, land and grants through the GLA, in order to promote diversity and innovation in London's approach to providing genuinely affordable housing?

In July I launched a tailored offer to support London’s smaller and medium-sized housing associations, available here: https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/smha_offer_2019.pdf

More widely, my Innovation Fund and Community Housing Fund offer support to a diverse range of affordable homebuilders. My Small Sites, Small Builders programme has made 30 publicly owned sites available to small developers, housing associations and community-led groups, and the Community-Led Housing Hub is supporting a range of community-led housing organisations to access advice and progress their schemes.
