Understanding the social housing retrofit accelerator offer event on 4 July 2022

Turner Townsend, the BEIS backed service,  kindly gave a presentation introducing members on Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) and the Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator that helps organisations prepare to bid.

Wave 2 of the SHDF will open late in August and be open for 8 weeks. Local authorities and housing associations can bid for funds to address at least 100 homes. This can be done as a consortia or as one organisation if you have enough homes. The criteria are still to be released but are expect to emphasise a fabric first approach

The SHRA offers help for housing associations, local authorities and consortia to bid. This is accessed via the self assessment form leading to a phone call to assess how to address the needs, access to group and individual support.  They invited members to visit their website at Home | Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator to discover more about the free help available.
