To help us solve the housing crisis in the East of England we have worked with some of the best universities and think tanks in the country. In 2017 we collaborated with the London School of Economics & Political Science to examine what the future social housing provider would look like. We also teamed up with the University of the West of England and six other housing associations to explore the use of modern methods of construction.

First research of its kind into modern methods of construction

Flagship worked in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE) to commission research into how modern methods of construction could help solve the current UK housing crisis and revealed industry perceptions need to change for MMC to be viewed as a strategic, innovative process rather than a technical solution.

The future social housing provider

Flagship worked in partnership with the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) to commission research into what the social housing provider of the future might look like. 
The research reveals that in ten years' time, social landlords will almost certainly face a more difficult environment, and the housing sector will become more diverse.

The future of social housing

How Affordable is Affordable Housing?

Flagship worked in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University’s Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) to commission research into the financial position of Flagship’s tenants and the affordability of its housing products.
The study provides a fascinating and valuable insight into customer's rent affordability and makes recommendations to help support tenants.
