Capita’s Jules Bickers and John Carleton from Genesis Housing Association will be hosting a roundtable at Capita Conferences’ Housing Chief Executives Forum which takes place today at the etc in Paddington, London.
The roundtable, entitled ‘Responding to Strategic Tensions’, will take place at 2pm and will be repeated again at 3.10pm.
The forum comes at a time of vast change where the government is guaranteeing up to £3.5 billion of cheaper debt for affordable housing finance and the regulatory framework for social housing is being revised.
With a drive for housing associations to diversify services in order to manage changes in funding, understanding what finance and borrowing options are available and how to grow commercially without changing core organisational aims is essential to meet housing need and sustain delivery.
With a strong emphasis on growing and diversifying commercial activity, the forum brings together the Department for Communities and Local Government, Homes and Communities Agency and leading housing chief executives from across the country.
