We’ll be covering all the key issues throughout the day:

  • Exploring the role of landlords in Wales in addressing the climate change emergency
  • Looking at innovative ways to tackle homelessness in Wales
  • Redefining our roles as anchor organisations in local communities and exploring how we can tackle poverty
  • Discussing the kind of services we should be providing to residents across Wales and how to give more residents a voice in designing services.
  • Read more

    And as we emerge from one of the most challenging periods in history we’ll hear from a powerful line up of speakers including government, landlords and experts from outside the sector on housing’s role in building a new and fairer society after Covid-19.
