At the heart of our work is our flagship national Housing Business Ready Programme for councils. The HFi has worked with 60 Councils on the Housing Business Ready Programme and through HBR masterclass workshops to prepare councils for strategic and delivery change for housing.

The HBR assessment programme is delivered on a one-to-one basis with councils and involves the council's political and senior management leadership teams. Each programme is tailored by council to ensure their housing ambition can translate into even stronger housing success. This is an invitation only programme and successful councils are awarded the prestigious Housing Business Ready award.
