The new series follows on from the creation of its race and housing editorial panel, which was set up almost a year ago.
The aim of the panel was to provide Inside Housing with ideas for stories and research, and to challenge and inform how the publication approaches its work.
The panel has already fed into numerous articles – and recent discussions have focused on both the response to the recent Sewell report and the need for a series of articles looking at how racism and race inequality intersect with the housing world.
The first article in this series is published today, looking at how race affects the likelihood that people will live in damp properties or fuel poverty.
The race and housing editorial panel’s response to the Sewell report is published in full below. Elsewhere today we publish a comment piece by panel member Jitinder Takhar, chief executive of Homes for Lambeth, discussing how her career has been impacted by racism and a clear call for sector leaders to take action.
And we also take a look at the work the panel has contributed so far.
