As part of our Great Places programme, we are looking for case studies that demonstrate the positive impact housing associations have in their communities. The case studies will provide evidence to support the Great Places Commission’s recommendations and continued work and may be used in our final report in June 2019.


We are particularly interested in examples that focus on community development, economic development, and physical and social regeneration.

We have found it useful to think about these areas in terms of four interrelated themes:

  • People: how we work with individuals and communities to build resilience and drive local change.
  • Places: how we positively contribute to physical, social and community infrastructure in places.
  • Partners: how we work with partners (local authorities, national government, community and voluntary organisations, universities, etc.) to make a difference locally.
  • Housing associations: our unique role as anchor institutions and how we organise ourselves to maximise our local impact.
