This briefing seeks to enable housing associations to assess the significance of the vote to leave the EU for their businesses. In summary:

  • In the short term, there is political and economic instability.
  • In the medium term, there are questions about how the vote to leave might impact housing associations’ ability to secure funding and build new homes.
  • In the long term, there may be an impact on regulation and housing demand.
  • In the immediate term, boards should equip themselves to determine the significance of the leave vote for their organisations, and plan effectively.
