Building Safety in Housing Conference 2020

Book your place now

27 February 2020

Nothing is more important to housing associations than the safety of the homes we provide. Wholescale change is needed to building safety in the UK and our sector should be at the forefront of this challenge.

The Building Safety in Housing Conference 2020 will be a key moment for housing associations to come together and drive forward this change.

It will focus in detail on:

  • the Building a Safer Future consultation and the latest proposals for reforming the building safety system
  • strategic use of risk management systems
  • successful communication with residents
  • lessons on safety from outside of the housing sector
  • how we can move beyond a culture of compliance to a culture of safety.

We’ll hear from housing association tenants and Building a Safer Future early adopter organisations, as well as discuss tools to help you create an effective plan for building safety. By analysing existing sector organisational standards delegates will create shared solutions to the challenges we face together.

The conference agenda will be published in October.
