Forget Boris and Brexit, what are the things that we can control closer to home that make a difference to our daily lives?
The relationship between social housing landlords and their residents has never been in sharper focus. Grenfell provided the catlyst, the Green Paper focused minds (if nothing else) and things are happening on the ground.
In organisations across the country, a culture change is taking place as housing providers, to various degrees, attempt to shift the power back to residents.
Engagement is being stepped up as collaboration, co-design, customer focus and community investment become the phrases of the moment.
Fundamentally, however, all of this is meaningless without residents trusting their landlords - a key commodity that has eroded away in recent years.
Relationships built on trust are very different to those that are not: embodying shared responsibility, collective ownership of decison making and cooperation between all parties.
At this year's Residents' Network annual conference, we will explore how landlords and residents can shape their future together using the principles of PACT - Power, Accountability, Connection and Trust.
Emerging from the Civil Society Futures independent inquiry, the PACT concept is being adopted by not-for-profit organisations of all stripes from housing associations and care providers to charities.
Our key note speaker this year is Julia Unwin, former chief executive of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and passionate housing campaigner, who chaired the inquiry.
In addition to Julia, the day will include a host of top speakers on a range of topics touching on the PACT principles and other key issues as well as interactive discussions and breakout sessions to give everyone the opportunity to have their say.
- Can we deliver a PACT for housing?
- Making resident engagement a top priority
- Collaboration, co-design, customer focus - from buzz phrases to genuine service improvement
- Community-led housing - giving residents total control
- Boris, Brexit and what it means for social housing
- The likely impact of the new consumer standards.
