The Housing Management Network - new name, fresh focus

HQN is pleased to announce the re-launch of ‘The Housing Management Network’, the network dedicated to supporting staff working in all areas of housing management, at every level.

Previously known as ‘The Neighbourhood Network’, the new name and fresh focus reflect the topics the network covers, as well as the members that use it.

Housing Management Network Lead Associate Bobbie Hough says: ‘The network has gone from strength-to-strength, with membership numbers hitting a record high. However, we were conscious that there had been significant changes in the sector in recent years and wanted to make sure the network reflected the roles and responsibilities of our members. The new name makes the purpose of the network much more apparent and we’re confident that the refreshed focus will improve the member offer and the membership as a whole.’

An essential resource for everyone involved in housing management, from executive management dealing with strategic issues to the front line resolving operational, day to day matters, the network covers key areas such as neighbourhood and estate management, ASB tenancy sustainment, resident involvement, supported housing and much more.

Benefits for members include:

  •          Regular briefings, toolkits and case studies
  •          Free attendance at best practice/networking events
  •          ‘Ask the members’ service and online member-only forum
  •          Discount from relevant seminars and training
  •          Regular benchmarking exercises, on areas such as voids and service charges.

Now’s a great time to join...

Join The Housing Management Network now and get one free place to our upcoming event: ‘The future of supported housing’.

Theresa May’s surprise announcement that Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates would not be applied to supported housing was welcome news for housing providers, and followed a sustained period of lobbying against a policy that had put the development of thousands of supported properties on hold.

Join us to hear about the future of supported housing, directly from The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
