Specialist non-profit membership organisation – UK SFA – is set to launch next month, marking the occasion with an official launch event. The organisation has now also opened its call for members.

The UK SFA is the only membership organisation available for industry stakeholders to join that focuses solely on the rapidly growing SFR sector. The organisation aims to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders that are dedicated to driving the sector’s sustainable growth.

Professionally invested and managed houses intended for long-term rent are now essential amongst the housing mix that the UK has to offer. The organisation aims to improve people’s lives and neighbourhoods by providing more of these houses for rent, and better housing options for people into the future.

At the event, UK SFA CEO & Founder Richard Berridge will provide a presentation on the organisation’s purpose and direction of travel, which will be followed by insightful keynotes from Savills and Homes England.

“After months of planning, preparation and engagement, I’m elated to be able to announce the date for the UK SFA’s formal launch event. The UK SFA recognises the distinct benefits and challenges that investing in and operating SFR brings, and although this has many synergies with multifamily rental housing, there are also key differences and nuances that are important to understand and unlock. With the sector poised to scale rapidly, there has never been a more pertinent time for those involved in SFR to join forces under one collaborative banner and accelerate positive change to the UK’s housing landscape.”

The UK SFA will host its launch event at the LOFT Pop-up Showroom, White City Warehouse, 62 Wood Lane, London, W12 7RH on Thursday 22 February.
