Sajid Javid has been re-appointed as minister for communities and local government by the Prime Minister.
In her post-election cabinet reshuffle, Theresa May also appointed former housing minister Gavin Barwell as her new chief of staff.
Ruth Davison, Executive Director of Public Impact at the National Housing Federation, says: “We are pleased to see Sajid Javid MP return as Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. His understanding of the housing sector, combined with the continuity of his reappointment, will be of reassurance to the sector.
“Housing associations are vital partners for anyone serious about tackling the housing crisis, given their strong track record of delivery and ambition to do more.
“We look forward to working with the Minister and his colleagues to deliver the houses the country so desperately needs and to find a sustainable way to build specialist homes for the elderly and more vulnerable.”
