Introducing the Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator

The Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator (SHRA) is a fully-funded support service to help social housing providers across England successfully bid into the Government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), with £800m committed between 2022-2025.

We offer a range of proven support which has been developed with and for the social housing sector by housing retrofit and grant application experts.

Who is delivering this programme?

Funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the service is delivered by Turner & Townsend.

 

Who can we support?

The SHRA is accessible to all social housing providers in England. Support provided will be relevant to the whole social housing sector, with a specific focus on those of you that can bid into the Government’s SHDF. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please contact us.
