What sessions do you not want to miss?
SFHA Housing Management Conference Programme published.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘putting the social in social housing’, and, together, we will explore ways to care for your tenants, your organisation and yourself. Sessions will include rapid rehousing, welfare reform, equalities and innovation.
We are particularly looking forward to the ‘housing management day from hell’, a pastiche set in a fictional RSL written and performed by TC Young’s finest.
Dr Paul Hickman from Sheffield Hallam University will open the conference and discuss the impact of welfare reform on housing associations.
Delegates will also hear from Marion Gibbs of the Scottish Government on rapid rehousing and tackling homelessness. Joining her during the session will be colleagues from various housing hubs from across Scotland who will discuss their approaches to rapid rehousing.
To finish the conference, TC Young will take you through the ‘housing management day from hell’. The session will deal with all your worst fears…and hopefully alleviate them. Set in a fictitious RSL office, TC Young will introduce a procession of abominable queries from tenants.
The conference will also feature a range of workshops relevant to housing management professionals and explore topics such as complaints, communicating Universal Credit to millennials, vicarious trauma, home safety visits, and developing a good practice response to domestic abuse.
