We are ready to work alongside Government to reinvigorate the lives of Customers and Communities right across the country.

Responding to the 2024 General Election result, Places for People’s Chief Executive Officer Greg Reed said:

“Today marks a new dawn for our country, hopefully bringing a stability that Communities and industries across the UK have craved. The new Government must now put words into action and deliver the transformative national change it promised during its successful campaign. So much leads back to a lack of vital housing and Labour’s pledge to turbocharge housebuilding and invest in healthy Communities is very welcome.

“We’ve seen this housing crisis coming for many years and it’s getting worse every day. More people than ever before are homeless, fewer new affordable homes are being built, and social housing waiting lists are so long people can see neither the light nor the end. Urgent action is vital and we can be a key partner in helping the Government hit the ground running from day one.

“At PfP we will keep doing what we’re doing. We will keep building homes at scale with the largest five-year pipeline in the sector. We will keep investing in people’s lives and generate hundreds of millions each year in social value. We will keep growing our health and wellbeing offer to add to our healthy communities programme and to the millions of people, young and old, who visit our Leisure centres each month.

“There will be challenges along the way but we know what it takes to create, manage and support thriving Communities. There is no other organisation quite like us and we are ready to work alongside Government to reinvigorate the lives of Customers and Communities right across the country – and deliver lasting change for generations to come. The time for talking is over, it’s time to build.”
