As the debate continues about what “professionalism in social housing” should and should not look like, we’re keen to hear what residents think.

As part of a series of roundtable discussions HQN is hosting in the lead-up to our annual conference in July, we’d like to invite social housing residents to a virtual session on Monday 5 June from 12pm to 1.30pm.

At each roundtable we’ll explore and debate your ideas and solutions about what you think will really make a difference:

  • What do you feel is wrong with the current situation in social housing? What needs fixing?
  • What does “professionalism” mean to you? What are the key characteristics you look for in a “professional”?
  • In your experience, how does housing compare with other sectors/professions?
  • How can the sector and the profession be made more attractive to employees (potential and current)?
  • Will mandatory qualifications for social housing managers make a difference?

We will be sharing views and comments from the roundtable with the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

To accept your place, please email us at [email protected].

We’d really value your input to these discussions – look forward to seeing you there.
