Influencing to build a better future

Do you want an opportunity to challenge the status quo and work with housing colleagues and experts to come up with solutions to build a better Wales?

 

Through the Summer of 2020 we will be embarking on an exciting piece of work to show how the social housing sector can play a major role in rebuilding and creating a better Wales.

We will be inviting housing staff, tenants and experts from different fields across Wales to look at the biggest challenges our sector, and country, is facing right now. Together we can come up with insights and ideas needed to develop the solutions for change.

 

Why?

 

Within just a few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a fundamental shift in the way that we live, work and play. The importance of a good home has been exposed on a grand and very public scale during the lockdown period.

As we move through this period of social and economic upheaval, we need to work in a different way. We need a shared sector understanding of our ambition, values and problems we are trying to solve. This is our opportunity to challenge the status quo and show our sector value ahead of the 2021 elections.

 

We aren’t starting from scratch

 

The good thing is we aren't starting from a blank sheet of paper, but building on years of work we have already done to meet our vision for a Wales where good housing is a basic right for all.

Our Housing Futures work from earlier this year also helped us to understand the major problems facing us, and most importantly discuss how we could potentially resolve these.
