    This report examines the post-devolution differences in housing policy in the four countries of the UK, and the impact these have had on low-income households.
    Since the 1999 devolution settlements there have been significant developments and divergences in housing policies across the UK.

    This report sets out the evidence on the impact this has had on housing issues for lower income households. This includes:
    • the priority of housing within devolved budgets;
    • the supply of social housing;
    • reforms to right-to-buy;
    • homelessness and the allocation of housing; and
    • the quality of social and private housing.
