The social housing sector in Scotland, chiefly housing association and council housing providers, confront a wide array of external and internal risks, as well as the need to respond to and work with multiple stakeholders like their tenants, government, the regulator and lenders. Providers operate risk-based management practices to help them assess and mitigate these risks. At the same time, many providers are looking to a series of resilience-building processes and strategies that will support and strengthen them in the uncertain years to come.<p></p> This study draws on evidence, key actor interviews and case studies with which to chart and analyse important questions for the housing sector that go to the fundamental role and purpose of social housing in the 21st century.
