Nothing is more important to housing associations than the safety of the people who live in their homes.

Over the past five years, housing associations have been doing everything they can to make sure a tragedy such as the Grenfell Tower fire never happens again. We’re identifying and remediating buildings with combustible materials, and we’ve contributed our experience and expertise to shaping the regulatory reforms needed to help keep our residents and their homes safe.

The Building Safety Bill has entered parliament and the Fire Safety Act ratified. Both will drive impactful changes to the way we manage existing buildings, and how we develop new homes. As a sector, housing associations are committed to a new regulatory system for safety and so have been trialling and implementing the new regulations, and sharing the lessons learned.

The conference will provide a platform for the sector to take another step forward in its work on residents’ safety. Attendees will learn from early adopters and sector champions, and gain insight from the key agencies driving the changes, including the new Building Safety Regulator, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and the Home Office. This is a must-attend, business-critical event for all housing associations and professionals who have responsibilities for safety, whether as a sector leader or in driving delivery on a daily basis.
