Borough Skills Survey



About the survey

Future of London (FoL) has been commissioned by the London Borough of Islington on behalf of the London Housing Directors Group and the North London Housing Partnership, supported by London Councils. FoL will map the skills and capacity of local authority housing teams involved in delivering council homes. To achieve this, FoL is surveying all London boroughs, borough housing companies and ALMOs and conducting short follow-up interviews (either face to face or on the phone) to fully understand skills gaps, recruitment and retention strategies and appetite for cross-borough collaboration.

Findings will be used to help boroughs target specific skills and capacity gaps, attract and retain more talent, and share experience and potentially resources with other boroughs. Initial findings will be shared with London Housing Directors Group in February, with a final report published in April. FoL will also share headline findings on its website.

The survey will take 15 to 20 minutes. It is open up to and including 17 February. We really appreciate your help.
