This chapter reviews the way in which changing social policies in the UK, particularly those developed by a ‘modernising’ Labour government elected in 1997, have impacted on the role of nonprofit housing organisations. It challenges the view that housing associations are merely the agents of government and discusses the ways in which they have also helped to shape the policy agenda for social housing.
