Online seminar: Preventing Homelessness, Averting Evictions – Enhanced Section 11 Practices
Thursday 30 July, 14:00–15:15, Teams
During 2019, facilitated by Scotland’s Housing Network, four local authority members of the North and Islands Homelessness and Housing Options Hub worked with seven housing associations to develop enhanced practices around the serving of section 11 notices designed to avert evictions and prevent homelessness.

Members of SFHA and Scotland’s Housing Network are invited to attend this free online seminar to learn more about the experiences of the organisations that participated in the project and the practices that they will retain for the future.

During the online seminar, you will hear from representatives of the local authorities and housing associations that participated in the project about:

  • Their experiences of applying the project principles within their contexts
  • What they discovered to be the challenges and what worked best
  • What practices they will be retaining in their future management of threatened repossessions

Cost: Free.

Using Technology to Transform Your Assets with DtL Creative

Thursday 6 August, 11:0012:00, Zoom

Augmented Reality...I Have Enough Problems with Reality: How Technology Can Transform How We Manage and Maintain our Assets

With the world of social housing turned upside down due to Covid-19, we all wondered how we would continue to deliver property and people services in a new reality where human contact needed to be kept to a minimum. 

Many housing organisations turned to technology, with some brave souls venturing into the world of augmented reality or AR to support tenants and staff. 

This session will talk about what AR is, how these housing associations have used it effectively and how it can be used in the future. This technology presents exciting opportunities for social landlords and, best of all, you don’t need to be a techie to understand it – or, more importantly, to use it!  

This webinar is free.
