Investment could benefit those with approved electrical qualifications

Industry professionals who have taken an electrician training course could find that they benefit from increased funding in housing.

The National Housing Federation recently revealed that the number of London residents on social housing waiting lists stood at 880,000 on April 1st 2009, which corresponds to 354,389 households.

In addition, the body stated that it expects these figures to rise further by 2011 - to around five million Britons nationwide.

Commenting on the statistics, Jim Vine, head of UK housing policy and practice at the Building and Social Housing Foundation, said that they outline the need to prioritise continuing funding for housing.

In addition, he explained that such support would also help workers in the building sector, which may also see electricians and plumbers have their employment opportunities boosted.

"Not only does it help to meet the need for decent roofs over families' heads, but investment in housing also keeps people in work and retains essential skills in the construction industry," Mr Vine advised.
