Housing Management Network annual conference

Virtual conference

This year’s housing management annual conference will explore the role housing management teams can play to support the next generation.

The next generation face unprecedented challenges, especially those children and young people for whom life was difficult before the pandemic hit.

There is a whole host of evidence indicating the pandemic has disproportionately impacted children and young people in several key areas, including housing, homelessness, employment, education, and mental health.

Research from charity Young Minds found that close to 70% of young people believed the pandemic would have a long-term negative effect on their mental health.

The housing sector – and in particular housing management teams – has a responsibility to work with partner organisations to minimise the impact of the pandemic on children and young people and create opportunities for them to have a brighter future.

What will be covered:

Sessions include:

  • Designing a better future for children and young people
  • Child exploitation and county lines – How can housing professionals help?
  • Tenancy sustainment – Care leavers pledge
  • Promoting housing as a career of choice for young people
  • Improving access to financial support for struggling families
  • Housing’s role in safeguarding children.

Why should you attend:

The event will highlight best practice on key topics including intergenerational communities, safeguarding, anti-social behavior and supporting care leavers.

What will you take away from the event?

Learn how to engage with the next generation and develop services that really support the needs of the tenants of tomorrow
