Tyfu Tai Cymru (TTC) is a five-year housing policy project which aims to provide insightful analysis and fill evidence gaps to support policy progression.

Funded by the Oak Foundation, the project is managed by the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru and covers three main strands:

  • Building the right homes to meet demand
  • Making sure housing is always a priority for local government
  • Demonstrating housing’s role in keeping people well and healthy.

Tyfu Tai Cymru events

We have been traveling all over Wales to engage directly with housing professionals to help shape the response to some of today’s most pressing challenges. Read more about the insights gathered through these events in our Housing Voices reports. 



Empty homes
Led by final year Housing Studies students at Cardiff Metropolitan University; Emma Parcell, Anthony Morgans, and Amy Mcmurray - this research draws on the experiences of housing professionals to better understand how community-led approaches to addressing empty homes become more commonplace.
Allocating social housing
Our latest research led by Joy Kent and Elin Brock focuses on the systems of allocating social housing. The findings shine a light on the inconsistencies in different areas and calls for changes in the interest of making the process fairer and more transparent for the public.
Joining the dots
Our latest survey of local government housing professionals revealed the pressure many people feel in their roles where the challenge of delivering more social and affordable homes is combined with competing priorities. Respondents had a clear desire to be ambitious but workload, funding, and capacity act as barriers.
