Introduction To Supported Housing & Care

Coming soon – This training will provide an overview of supported housing in England and how it is funded. We will also explore the variety of supported housing models, and look at how we can modernise the way in which these are run with new technology, and how to ensure we tackle social isolation in older people.

Introduction To Sustainability and Climate Change For Housing Association Boards

There has never been so much content, so many opinions and so much urgency around sustainability and the environment. This introductory training session provides some important anchor points to support the attendee in framing the sustainability challenge and to identify points of alignment between your organisational strategic objectives and sustainability goals.

Introduction to Risk and Assurance for Board Members

Coming soon
1.5 hour training will provide Board Members with an introduction to Risk and Assurance. The understanding and management of risk is a key element of any business and all social landlords are expected to manage risk effectively by their Regulator. This session will give Board members and officers a good grounding in how risks are assessed and the development of risk mitigations and recovery plans. The session will then consider how Board members gain assurance that risks are being managed and controls are being operated. As social landlords continue to be found wanting by Regulators around risk, how do you ensure that your organisation has been complying with all its requirements?
