How the English Housing Survey makes a difference
This research will help shape the future of housing policy in your area – which could affect your family, friends and neighbourhood.
In the past, the survey has had a big influence on important government policies. Through Right to Buy and Help to Buy schemes, millions of people have bought the home where they live. The Winter Fuel Allowance has benefitted millions of people over 65, and thanks to the Green Deal households are now saving money on bills with new boilers, insulation and solar panels.
A little time to make a big difference
It’s easy to say no to our interviewers, but we hope you don’t. We’re not asking for money, just that you spare a little time to share your thoughts and opinions. We know your time is precious, but our work really does make a difference. We help government and charities to make the right decisions about the big issues.
