What is the Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator?

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 the Greater London Authority via Turner & Townsend.

The Social Housing Retrofit Accelerator builds upon the Mayor of London’s successful Retrofit Accelerator – Homes which aims to transform the way London retrofits its ageing and energy-inefficient housing to create warm, affordable and ultra-low carbon homes.

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.
