Tenants plan the 2019 ARCH Tenant Conference 30/05/2019 Labelled as Tenants

Members of the ARCH Tenants' Group have met to finalise the programme for the 2019 ARCH Tenant Conference, to be held in Bridlington on 3 October 2019.


This year marks the centenary of the Addison Act and 100 years of council housing and the ARCH Tenant 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" promised in the Social Housing Green Paper.


The ARCH Tenant Conference is organised by tenants for tenants and members of the ARCH Tenants' Group have come together to finalise this year's conference programme.


With the Government shortly expected to announce the next steps following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in 2017 and the consultation in 2018 on its proposals set out in the Social Housing Green Paper, this year's ARCH Tenant Conference will focus on keeping your home safe.


With a range of key speakers from across the sector we will be looking at 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.


This year's event is to be held at Bridlington Spa Entertainment & Conference Centre in the seaside town of Bridlington in the East Riding of Yorkshire district.


Our 2019 Tenants' Conference will again include the ARCH Community Champion Award. This is a special ARCH award to recognise the dedication, willingness, inspiration and devotion that our tenants freely give to others and it is hoped that this can motivate others or give them examples of things that they can do in their own community.


The deadline for submitting entries for the Award is Friday 30 August 2019. To request an entry form please email Tina Reid


Attendance at the conference will be free for up to five delegates from each ARCH member council and Bridlington has a good range of inexpensive hotels and B&Bs if delegates wish to stay over.


The ARCH Tenants' Group will be finalising details of the conference programme in the next few weeks and details of how to book your place at this event will be published in the next edition of the ARCH Bulletin. In the meantime, save the date of 3 October in your diary.
