Event Details

In this webinar we'll be exploring the 2024 UK Housing Review chapter on ethnic inequalities in housing, which highlights the significant race disparities found when it comes to housing disadvantage and deprivation, and evaluates the policy response to this across the UK.

We'll be joined by two authors of this chapter from the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) to discuss their findings, and most importantly what we as a sector can do better to reduce ethnic inequality in social housing.

Our speakers for the event are-

  • Professor David Robinson, Co-Investigator at the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence.
  • Dr Rhiannon Williams, CaCHE Research Associate,

David and Rhiannon are based at the University of Sheffield's Department of Urban Studies and Planning.
