On the results of the General Election win by the Labour party, Nicholas said:

"This will be the first Labour government since Stonewater’s formation in 2015. While their manifesto demonstrated a cautious path, I am looking forward to seeing whether the new government can deliver on pledges to build more social and affordable homes. We know this will take a concerted effort between government, local authorities and providers across the sector and we look forward to working towards our vision for everyone having the opportunity to have a place that they can call home.

“For customers, I hope that Labour’s pledge to ‘review’ universal credit sees a more supportive approach, ensuring that those who most need support get the help they need, and ultimately that more customers can thrive. 

“Having welcomed eight Housing Ministers since the last election in 2019, I am hopeful that the appointed minister will be in place for the long term and will be able and willing to make a real difference for our sector. 

“We hope that the government will be focused on delivery, consistency and ambition, and we look forward to working with the MPs in the areas that we operate to help them tackle the issues being faced and deliver support for customers."
