An introduction

WREN Housing Solutions was founded by four London Boroughs (Enfield, Redbridge, Newham and Waltham Forest) and is a collaboration of councils and suppliers working closely together towards a better solution for housing homeless families in and around London.

The WREN philosophy is that being open and transparent in the process of sourcing accommodation can lead to better outcomes for all. Using technology can formalise inter-borough agreements and create a simpler and better process to encourage local housing suppliers.

Launched in Autumn 2015, the WREN solution has already a large number of families, delivered a better process for the member councils, and allowed dozens of local suppliers an easy way to supply properties to multiple authorities.
