Your chance to speak at the first-ever Housing Community Summit

Alongside our advisory board of top leaders and practitioners in the sector and beyond, the NHF and CIH are creating an event that's truly for the sector by the sector.

Across more than 80 sessions, we'll be covering all the business-critical topics affecting social housing in 2024 and beyond. The programme is already shaping up, so this is your opportunity to get your organisation on the agenda.

We're particularly interested in hearing from organisations who can share best practice examples on the following topics:

Housing in Focus

  • Investment in existing homes and building long-lasting partnerships with funders.
  • Preparing for in-depth assessments.
  • Public and private sector partnerships.
  • Improving and maintaining a safety case.
  • Measuring and evidencing the success of resident engagement methods.
  • Experience with devolution partnerships.

Housing in Practice

  • Data-led resident engagement.
  • Building better third-party relationships.
  • Homes fit for the future.
  • Resident engagement with building safety.
  • Acting on tenant satisfaction measures
  • Planning for climate resilience.

We're especially keen to work with organisations we haven't showcased before and people from a diverse range of backgrounds, organisation types and sizes.
