Covid-19: Road to recovery workshop

 What next for income management and tenancy sustainment?

Covid-19: Road to recovery workshop

Recent months have placed new demands on everyone’s resolve and initiative. Housing providers have had to move swiftly to adapt to radically new ways of working in an extremely uncertain landscape.

But crises can also yield opportunities, not least to reflect and refresh what we do and how we do it. This has been happening right across the housing sector.

Now’s the time to share all the emerging learning and best practice.

Facilitated by HQN Associate, Tony Newman,  this workshop is a great opportunity for managers to get together, take stock and share learning, ideas and practical tips.

How has your income management service adapted?  What will the future service look like? 

We will look at:

  • What have we learnt under lockdown?
  • What worked well? What would we do differently?
  • Where are the emerging challenges? What can we do about them?
  • How do we reshape our services to meet those challenges?
  • How do we strike the performance balance – maximising income and supporting tenants affected by the COVID-19 aftermath?
  • What are the “golden rules” of income management that can help us to navigate through future changes and possible crises?

Is your service ready for the post-lockdown world?
