This report has been prepared by the Welsh Economy Research Unit (WERU) at Cardiff Business School for Community Housing Cymru (CHC). It reports the findings of a CHC survey of new homes provided by Registered Social Landlords (RSL) in 2007/08, estimates the economic impacts of housing associations in Wales, including regeneration, and reviews some of the social and economic implications of housing association activity. The work of housing associations is often difficult to quantify, and, as was recognised in the Essex Review, is seldom fully appreciated by the public at large. Housing Associations (HAs) or Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) are not-for-profit voluntary bodies formed to provide good quality, affordable homes for those in housing need. Improved quality of housing is linked with better health, economic opportunity, access to services and general quality of life for occupiers. Housing Associations also provide modern community facilities, accommodation for students and the aged, as well as rescuing important buildings. Increasingly, they are responsible for innovative projects which go well beyond traditional formula.
