Matthew Walker CEO of PlaceShapers said: "Our members exist to provide homes to people who can’t rent at market rates. There is a desperate need for these homes all around the country. As landlords, our key responsibility is to provide safe, decent affordable homes. We firmly believe that well maintained and secure homes are the crucial foundation for life that everyone deserves.
“We welcome the findings from the Better Housing Review, published today. We will be active partners to support the sector action plan that arises from the review and our members will work in close partnership with their tenants to take these recommendations forward.
“As a network we will create opportunities to learn from the inspirational examples of good practice the report refers to and move forward with absolute determination whenever there are opportunities for improvement and learning.”
