Digital Engagement: Adapting and Restarting
Tuesday 1 December, 11:00–12:00
Covid-19 has meant that traditional ways of engaging with tenants are no longer fit for purpose. TIS has developed a toolkit that will support members to adapt and restart communication with the aim of ensuring that all tenants are kept up to date and their voices are heard, including those who can't access digital resources.
Impact and Influence: Driving Effective Communications
Wednesday 2 December, 11:00–12:00
From the impact of Covid-19 to changes in housing policy and social care services, housing associations are increasingly on the frontline.
This session, delivered by Graeme Downie and Sally Trethewie of Orbit Communications, will outline some of these challenges and explain how communications teams can be prepared.
Allocations and Succession Legal Training
Tuesday 8 December, 10:30–11:30
This session, by TC Young, will cover the practical, and legal, changes you may need to consider when dealing with allocations during the pandemic as well as how to deal with succession requests.

Creating the conditions for kindness
Wednesday 20 January, 11:00–12:00
This webinar will explore practice-based research from the Carnegie UK Trust on the importance of kindness, and what it might take to embed ‘radical kindness’ within an organisation. It will also reflect on what we have learnt from the response to Covid, in which many organisations have embraced a more human and responsive approach to supporting people and communities.
Social Value: Adding Value to Your Business
Wednesday 27 January, 10:00–11:00
This webinar will discuss social value and how to make it work for commercial partners as well as housing associations. It will explore low cost/no cost options and how your approach to social value can help your business to win more tenders, increase visibility, contribute to improving the overall wellbeing of the communities you work in and, ultimately, bounce back stronger and smarter.
