This article that was first published on Social housing Matters provides a detailed and plain English explanation of changes to how the social value produced by private companies is measured. I argue in my thesis that social housing has an opportunity to influence the creation of these frameworks, and so measure the social value that furnished home offers. Other core housing services such as responsive repairs and stable, long-lasting tenures could be measured for their social value. The basic idea is measurement makes such services visible to decision-makers and funders and inhibits the mission drift in social housing away from its core purpose of providing safe and stable homes.
