Together, smaller housing associations make an enormous contribution to UK housing. However, too often your story goes untold.

At Smaller Housing Associations' Conference and Exhibition, you have opportunities to:

  • Learn first-hand how to overcome hurdles and capitalise on opportunities
  • Join round-table discussions with peers who have similar strategic priorities and regional issues to learn from each other’s successes and side-step potential pitfalls
  • Engage with handpicked partners onsite

Some of the themes coming out of the research so far:

  • Trust – this isn’t just a housing issue, the public’s attitude about who they trust, who inspires them and what they value has shifted. We'll explore the factors driving trust and identify solutions which can help.
  • Supply – all organisations are unique and have different priorities and needs, so we want to facilitate conversations to help housing associations work together to create solutions to develop more homes. How can we be more innovative? How can we tackle some of the barriers to building more?
  • Supported housing – we know the impact of the cuts to funding on supported housing is a critical issue which is why we're working closely with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to ensure that any changes proposed work for both our members and residents.
  • Innovation – hear from leaders from within and out of the sector about creating the collaborative environment needed to foster a culture of innovation to generate potential solutions to some of our biggest challenges.

Kate Henderson and Baroness Diana Warwick are confirmed to speak at this year’s event, keep your eyes peeled for more big name announcements over the coming months.
