Hear direct from the Regulator of Social Housing and the Housing Ombudsman at our annual event for asset management teams.

Has asset management ever been more under the spotlight? If it’s not the continued fallout from the building safety crisis or the ITV News documentary into the poor state of some social housing, it’s repairs at the top of the complaints league or the ongoing challenge to retrofit our housing stock to make it fit for the future.

This year’s asset management network annual conference will try to make sense of a bewildering year in which the sector’s reputation has taken a bashing. Where do we go from here? What are the solutions to the many problems we face? And how do we get on top of the day job to deliver our net zero ambitions?

    • The Regulator of Social Housing on what new consumer regulations, KPIs and a refreshed Decent Homes Standard might mean for your organisations

    • The Future Homes Standard – are your development plans on track to meet the government’s zero-carbon ambitions?
    • Retrofit and decarbonisation – do you have a costed asset management plan to retrofit your existing stock? What approach are you taking? Where is the money coming from?
    • Leadership in asset management – who is driving the agenda in your organisation and do the board and executive team understand the significance of what’s around the corner?
    • How do we put residents front and centre of our asset management strategies? Do we really understand their priorities?
