The Cost of Living & Affordable Housing Crises – Octopus Responds

Presented by

Benjamin Davis, CEO, Octopus Real Estate | Kevin Beirne, Octopus Registered Provider | Edward Clough, Octopus Real Estate

About this talk

• The current cost of living crisis (especially fuel poverty) is quickly compounding the UK’s long-term structural housing crisis. • With wages and pensions failing to keep up with rising prices, more families and older people are being priced out of the housing market each week. • The National Housing Federation estimates that up to 2 million households could be on local authority housing waiting lists by the end of 2022. • Benjamin Davis will explain why Octopus, as a B-Corp, and with its energy expertise, is well placed to tackle these dual challenges. • Kevin Beirne will use his wealth of experience of the social housing sector to analyse the current affordable housing market. • Edward Clough will then explain the nuances of our strategy and where Octopus will be spreading its tentacles.
