Steve Collins comments on the Government’s Social Housing White Paper

Nov 19, 2020
Commenting on the Government’s Social Housing White Paper Rentplus CEO Steve Collins said: ” Social housing is a stepping stone to home ownership and I welcome the Government’s recognition of that within the White Paper.”


He added:

“However it is an omission not to mention that there are existing successful models which assist people from social housing into home ownership without any recourse to public funds. For example 17% of our Rentplus tenants come directly from social housing and in some areas, this is as high as 50%.

“Complementary models such as affordable rent to buy exist and can be delivered alongside government schemes. Affordable rent to buy is part of the answer to the affordable housing crisis and the Government should recognise it as such.”
