Preparing for the Social Housing White Paper? Let HQN help you peer review your approach

Virtual workshop

We all recognise the importance of the Social Housing White Paper for the housing sector. Lots of you have told us you are busy preparing for it and putting together your plans.

You don’t need to do this alone. HQN is here to help.

On the back of our very popular toolkit we are running a series of practical workshops. It’s a great opportunity for organisations to get together to share approaches and best practice under the expert guidance of Roger Jarman, HQN associate and author of the toolkit and Lydia Dlaboha, HQN’s deputy CEO who heads up HQN’s service improvement work.

The first session (held virtually) will be on Wednesday 13 October to consider and explore the way in which organisations are tackling their self-assessments.

After that we’ll facilitate a general discussion and debate to:

  • Explore the governance arrangements for this – the frameworks and reporting structures that are being set up
  • The who and the how – who is being involved in the self-assessment and the approaches that are being taken
  • Best practice and lessons learnt so far:
    • What is working well?
    • What to avoid and how?

Over the next couple of months we’ll run a session on each chapter working our way through the toolkit covering:

  • What are the expectations? What does good look like?
  • What needs clarification?
  • What are people struggling with? And the solutions
  • Top tips...with a write up of lessons learnt.

HQN experts will be on hand to provide valuable guidance and advice.

Delegates will go away with a lots of ideas as well as a detailed workbook to supplement our toolkit.

Numbers will be kept small to make sure everyone gets a chance to take part.

Chatham house rules will apply so you can speak openly and honestly.
