The United Kingdom's only comprehensive housing management computer database has secured a grant to identify good housing management practice by housing associations.
The £15,000 Housing Corporation grant will enable the Chartered Institute of Housing's Good Practice Unit to collate examples of good housing management in the housing association sector and broadcast them to other housing organisations.
The Good Practice Unit and the Housing Corporation will write to the housing associations in England seeking information on their housing management policies and practices. This material will be added to the unit's resource library database, and distributed through its enquiry service and published guidance.
Good Practice Unit manager Janet Richards said: 'We have been inundated with requests for advice and information in recent months. This grant means we can recruit a housing professional to concentrate on developing our information resources on housing associations and make sure we keep abreast of the new initiatives.'
