Housing body in hunt for agency

The Housing Corporation is searching for public affairs support and has kicked off talks with a number of consultancies.

Funded by the Department of Communities and Local Government, the body was created in 1964 to build affordable housing and help house the homeless. ­

It also works with housing associations to drive urban regeneration and tackle the problems of rural areas.

It is unclear what the PA brief involves. A Housing Corporation spokeswoman denied it was conducting a search for PA support.

However, it is understood that the body began preliminary discussions with agencies this week and is looking to draw up a shortlist of firms to pitch for the brief.
