The Social Housing White Paper: Training for board members and executive teams

What does the White Paper mean for housing providers and residents? How should registered providers of all kinds (including local authorities) prepare for the new regulatory regime being designed by Government and the Regulator of Social Housing? What roles do Board members and Councillors have in ensuring that their organisations are ‘fit for purpose’ as the new regime is rolled out over the next few years?  

The Social Housing White Paper: Training for board members and executive teams

The latest developments associated with the plans and actions of the Government, Regulator and Ombudsman will be highlighted since the White Paper’s publication in November last year.

This virtual workshop, led by Roger Jarman, will explore:

  • The re-booting of consumer regulation
  • The new focus on safety – particularly building safety
  • Housing inspection re-born – what will it look like?
  • Dealing with complaints – a key element of the new regulatory framework
  • The return of performance measurement – how will tenant satisfaction measures differ from old style performance indicators?
  • Decent Homes ‘Plus’ – what will the proposed review mean for providers?
  • Tenant engagement – forging a new relationship with service users.   

Who should attend?

The training is designed to brief board members and executive teams on the proposed regulatory framework as set out in the Social Housing White Paper.

The training can also be adapted for managers and staff working at all levels as well as tenants and residents.

For in-house sessions we tailor and design the session to meet your specific circumstances and requirements.
