Comms Fest: Access to information in the White Paper era – what does it mean for housing associations?

Part of comms fest

virtual workshop

The Government’s white paper on Social Housing mentions transparency nearly 30 times.

It proposes new regulations which mean housing associations must share more information with tenants.

Find out what this means for your housing association and learn from the experience of those who are already used to operating to Freedom of Information rules.  

Speakers:

  • Jonathan Hulley – Partner, Birketts Solicitors, social housing legal expert
  • Sue Fox – Hough Bellis Communications, author of “Freedom of Information: is it changing the way we do PR?”.
