We have already announced an additional £2 billion of long term funding certainty for housing associations. This extra funding will deliver more affordable homes and stimulate the sector’s wider building ambitions, through strategic partnerships

Our ten year funding commitment through strategic partnerships marks the first time any government has invested such long-term funding in new homes through housing associations

We will seek to build on the progress that has been made on building new social homes as we approach this year’s Spending Review.
