Our research programme
We're committed to growing our research programme so that we can contribute to local and national policy debates on housing-related issues.
Our aim is to deliver robust research that uses our insight and experience to develop evidence-based arguments on a range of areas impacting our residents, the housing sector and the South East as a whole. Our focus is on proposing solutions, not just identifying problems. We use our research both to influence others and stimulate wider debate as well as to challenge ourselves and inform our decisions, services and approach.
Our research is led by our in-house team who provide analytical and research expertise. We also collaborate with a wide range of partners such as universities, think-tanks and other research agencies.

We want our research to be respected, discussed, and valued both within Peabody and in the wider social policy environment. To achieve this, we have made sure that our projects focus on enabling one or more of the priorities set out in our Group Strategy (2018-21) and regularly liaise with public policy professionals to ensure they will have external impact. Themes include health and housing, welfare reform and young people.
