In 2023, housing providers face increased obligations to simultaneously: improve housing standards and tackle disrepair, empower tenants, meet net zero targets, address building safety and increase housing supply. In the face of limited resources, it’s more important than ever to collaborate and find complementary strategic goals to achieve more together. HOMES UK and Unlock Net Zero Live taking place on 22-23 November at ExCeL is an unmissable event for housing and asset management, development and sustainability professionals.
You’ll get the opportunity to learn from 275+ speakers across six stages with 70+ hours of CPD accredited content covering the top issues.
Healthier outcomes: Reducing carbon while tackling damp & mould
Awaab’s Law within The Social Housing Act puts obligations on housing providers to take immediate action on dangerous hazards in homes including damp and mould. How can we improve the energy efficiency of homes while reducing damp and mould?
High quality homes for a better quality of life
While we need to accelerate the delivery of affordable housing supply, this cannot be done at the expense of housing quality. During this session we will look at how to design and build affordable homes that are suitable for the future.
How can we prioritise affordable housing delivery despite economic uncertainty?
Housing providers are facing a plethora of economic pressures as a result of regulatory requirements, delivering net zero, and the need to build more homes whilst balancing asset management investments. How can we avoid trade-offs between investment in existing and new homes?
Working in partnership to deliver retrofit at scale & for all
There have been great examples of collaboration to deliver retrofit projects through the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, but further action is needed to enable long-term area based retrofit collaboration. Join this session to understand how we can enable the mass roll out of retrofit activity by bringing together housing providers, local authorities and communities.
Developing a strategic approach to new building safety regulation that empowers tenants & residents
Learn how to navigate evolving building safety regulations and ensure remediation plans can be completed in a cost-effective and efficient way. Hear about engagement strategies that are helping to rebuild resident trust and gain clarity on remediation cost protections that could support leaseholders.
Building confidence in the planning system
This session will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing organisations using the existing developer contributions system. How can we solve the issues that are limiting the delivery of homes in the planning system?
New & innovative finance models to fund Net Zero
The up-front capital costs needed to decarbonise homes in the UK remain high. Join this session to explore the implications of the changing finance market, what lenders are looking for, and how ESG financing is pushing organisation’s further on their commitments.
Is co-production delivering improved service design & an enhanced tenant-landlord relationship?
Listening and learning from lived experience, at a time of extensive “othering” as highlighted in the Ombudsman’s report, is a call to action for housing providers of all sizes. Join this session to understand how RPs can include the tenant experience when making key decisions through initiatives like co-production.
Behind the Walls: Bridging the gap between perception surveys & transactional data to increase transparency
Despite the introduction of Tenant Satisfaction Measures, there is not a consistent methodology for how social landlords collect and interpret tenant surveys. Discover best practice methods of analysing and presenting data in a meaningful and transparent way for tenants and residents.
How to build & retain a diverse & skilled workforce that is driven by social purpose
This session will uncover ways to put social purpose at the heart of recruitment and staff development to address the sector’s chronic talent shortage and its impact on services and tenants.
Plus we’ll also be showcasing over 150 exhibitors, which is a fantastic opportunity to meet your supply chain, gain industry updates and discover new solutions all under one roof. To help you navigate this, we are devising an improved innovation trail of not-to-miss highlights to help you get the most out of your time.
And finally, new for this year and in response to the skills crisis and calls for professionalism, we are introducing a jobs fair and series of talks designed to help both leaders who are recruiting and talent. HOMES UK and Unlock Net Zero Live will become a place to facilitate the knowledge exchange and connections needed to attract high-quality diverse people to a career with purpose and to develop those already in the sector.
