Bookings are now being taken for this year's ARCH Tenants' Group
conference in Bridlington on Thursday 3 October 2019.
The Conference is organised by the ARCH Tenants' Group for
2019 is expected to be a key year for social housing and the
timing of this year's conference will enable tenants to take an
early look at the Government's expected announcements in September
on the next steps and implementation plan following consultation on
its proposals set out in the Social Housing Green Paper.
We will also focus on 'keeping your home safe' with a range of
key speakers from across the sector addressing topics including
fire safety, gas safety and electrical safety in the home as well
as what tenants want to see included in the next generation of
decent homes and what the new system of complaints and consumer
redress in social housing might look like.
2019 also marks the centenary of the Addison Act and 100 years
of council housing and this year's ARCH Tenants Conference will
celebrate the centenary by taking a look at what a couple of our
member councils and their tenants are doing to mark the occasion as
well as looking forward to the Government's promise of "a new deal
for social housing" set out in the Social Housing Green Paper.
Council housing has provided millions of people with a decent,
safe, secure and affordable home over the last 100 years and
delegates will be able to look forward to what the future might
hold for the next generation of council housing.
