ARCH Tenants Conference 2017 28/09/2017 Labelled as Tenants

On the 20 September just under 100 people took part in this year's ARCH Tenants Conference kindly hosted by Birmingham City Council at the historic Council House.


The annual ARCH Tenants Conference is organised by the ARCH Tenants Group for tenants of ARCH member councils. Tenant representatives on the ARCH Tenants Group worked with the event management team from HouseMark to plan and develop the conference programme and venue arrangements and they play a very hands on part on the day. The conference was chaired by Jenny Hill, ARCH Tenants Group Chair and members of the Tenants Group chaired workshops; registered and met and greeted delegates and speakers and helped with other event management tasks on the day. All an example of great team work.


With social housing being high on the political agenda right now this year's 11th Annual Tenant Conference was fully subscribed with all available delegate places taken up. Tenants from ARCH member councils across the country heard the latest on how the Consumer Standards are regulated, the plans for roll out of Universal Credit and what they might expect in terms of government housing policy following publication of the Housing White Paper, the outcome of the General Election and the tragic events at Grenfell Tower and recent announcement of a Housing Green Paper on the future of social housing.


For more information on the presentations and workshops read the full conference report.
