There is wide consensus that we face a housing crisis. Following years of diagnosing the problem, it’s clear that there are no silver bullets and that sustained, positive change will require action from every part of the system, including the continued need for social innovation.

New Perspectives on Housing, brings together key influencers and actors from the housing sector to explore new ideas and solutions for the well-evidenced challenges that exist in the private rented sector.

The event will focus on five key challenges:

  • Affordability
  • Families with children in the private rental sector
  • Intermediaries
  • Security of tenure
  • Use of existing housing stock

The event will kick off with a range of provocations from speakers, including Charlie LeadbetterJosh Ryan-Collins from UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose, Kathy Evans from Children England, Susan Aktemel from Homes for Good and Linda Leslie from the Scottish Government.

Joined by developers, local authorities, tenants, policy makers, innovators and creative thinkers, you’ll then have an opportunity to participate in action-oriented, interactive workshops, designed to help identify opportunities to collaborate and create change together, to improve housing.
