Response from Clarion Housing Group to the final report of Shelter's commission on the future of social housing

Clare Miller, Group Chief Executive of Clarion Housing Group commented:

“As the largest social landlord in the country, we welcome the call from Shelter’s Housing Commission for a significant expansion in the provision of social housing.

Clarion provides good quality and affordable homes to people who are failed by the market and the need for our services has never been greater. We know that the security of having a home radically improves the life chances of those lucky enough to be able to get a social tenancy. To tackle the housing crisis we need bold measures and a close partnership with the government.

Being a good and responsive landlord to our 360,000 residents is our first priority at Clarion. There is nothing more important than the welfare of our residents and we measure our performance every year by their satisfaction with our services. We fully support the call from Shelter that, ‘all social renters should have a strong voice in how their homes are managed and maintained’.”
