About our work

London boroughs together own and maintain more than half a million homes. We work with councils, housing associations and other partners to ensure that London's social housing receives the necessary funding and support to tackle such issues as overcrowding, homelessness and the lack of affordable housing.

We work closed with Communities and Local Government to strengthen the role of local authorities in the delivery of housing and lobby for further resources for London councils to provide more homes for the capital.
