Martin Ward

I am an independent consultant on supported housing and benefit-related matters. I have provided consultancy services for many national organisations as well as local authorities and large and small housing providers across the UK for over 30 years. 

I am the co-author of:

  • the Shelter/CIH Guide to Housing Benefit, and
  • the Guide to Universal Credit and  Council Tax Rebates.

My current interest is the financing of supported housing in the UK and regulatory regimes that drive up standards. I am interested in the structured, graphical and quantitative representation of complex matters that aid understanding and action. 

Let’s talk if you have a project of interest.

Philip Parnham

I initially qualified as a solicitor. Since 2010 I have been a consultant (non-practising solicitor) specialising in exempt accommodation. I have worked for a housing provider and a housing consultancy. 

Examining evidence and producing information in easily digestible and searchable formats is something I do. 

Contact me with any business-related proposals.
