As part of its ongoing work to support the housing sector to respond to the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Social Housing Resilience Group, which is led by SFHA, created online platform Open Space to help organisations restart and re-design their services.   

Open Space allows the housing sector to share existing examples of good practice as well as to test new ideas and find solutions to challenges.     

Examples of how other organisations are adapting their services, include: 

  • Test and Protect Programme: Trust Housing Association has shared its communication to tenants which explains the new Covid-19 Test and Protect strategy 

  • Virtual tenancy agreementts: Ardenglen Housing Association has created a YouTube video which explains its tenancy agreement for prospective tenants to view before signing. 

  • Social distancing sign ups: Link Housing Association has developed a simple allocations viewings and sign ups procedure that can be used while social distancing rules remain in place. 

  • Contactless lettings process: Sanctuary Housing has developed a virtual viewing of properties process for potential tenants and a new sign up process.

  • Community engagement: During the pandemic, Govan Housing Association has distributed nearly 200 devices and data to tenants and community organisations to help close the digital divide in Scotland.

Do you have an example that you think other organisations in the housing sector could benefit from? Share it by completing this form.
