Using research to help improve our future work

Looking at the facts helps us improve how we do things in future. And we regularly carry out research projects – often in partnership with others – to inform our future strategy. And we feel our research helps us deliver the right homes and services in the right places.  

We look at the bigger picture as well – studying the bigger issues affecting our sector. It helps us influence how we and others can work better and contribute to the wider policy debate.
