ResPublica Director Phillip Blond to feature on a panel on the future of housing associations
Tthe National Housing Federation's Leaders' Forum and Exhibition 2013 will this year be held over the 25th and 26th of February at Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, Tower Hamlets.
The Leaders’ Forum is a gathering place for chief executives and chairs of the housing sector to network and learn from a range of high-profile and inspirational speakers from media, political and housing backgrounds.
As part of this event ResPublica Director Phillip Blond will feature on a panel titled "What is the new role for housing associations?".
What is the point of the existence for housing associations if providing affordable, social housing is placed out of reach by government reforms in large swathes of the country? With the further sell off of social housing, is social housing still a viable option in the UK? This session examines the future for the sector, both politically and economically.
Other panellists include Geeta Nanda, Chief Executive of Thames Valley Housing and Grainia Long, Chief Executive of the CIH. The panel will be chaired by David Orr of the National Housing Federation.
This session will take place between 12.15 – 13.15pm.
