The Greenhouse is a ground-breaking innovation programme lead by the National Housing Federation, the trade body for England's housing associations. It brings together innovators from housing associations from every region, who will work full-time for 16-weeks to develop new products and services that tackle major social challenges including housebuilding, tackling homelessness and ensuring homes adapt as people get older and their needs change. This is the first time that social innovation has been attempted on this sector-wide scale.
