Million Homes is a new not-for-profit organisation that styles itself as “a fresh and responsible approach to sharing ideas and options for property ownership, for house building, home funding, and to get more homes built”. Natalie Elphicke, one of the organisation's founders, published a report on new sources of housing finance with the thinktank Policy Exchange in 2010, which said that housing associations could raise £30bn a year – and build 100,000 new homes – by raising money directly from pension funds. Natalie was recently profiled in Guardian Society which noted that Million Homes will “try to tackle the housing crisis faced by ‘generation rent’ and low-income families who find themselves locked out of home ownership but unable to secure a social tenancy”. She says she wants to design a model of "progressive ownership".

Our Network event will allow Natalie to share her ideas, her aspirations for the not-for-profit and the challenges for the housing sector – and allow you the opportunity to ask questions and see better how you might get involved.
