The what, where and how of the UK Housing Data Standards

This event has been cancelled. Please contact us for further information about the data standards.

In November 2019, we published version 3.2 of the UK Housing Data Standards, featuring use cases for care and support, income collection and asset maintenance.

In January 2020, we started working on the development handover data standard use case, working with OSCRE and numerous partners, including Home Group, Hyde, L&Q, Thirteen, Gentoo, B3 Living, CHP, Linc Cymru, MTVH, Network Homes, LB Camden, Lewisham Homes, Yorkshire Housing, Morgan Sindall and SDS.

Over 850 organisations have downloaded the UK Housing Data Standards and over 230 have informed us that they are implementing them in their business.

To find out why the time is now for data standards, here's a short comment piece from Dr Rob Wray, HACT's Chief Innovation Officer.
