Thrive and innovate

More uncertainty seems now the only certainty when you consider Brexit, the implementation of further welfare reform, an inevtiable rise in inflation and the latest political events across the Atlantic. A volatile domestic housing market and a volatile international political landscape are compounded by the need to respond to a divided society.

The Housing Finance Conference provides the plaftorm for the aspiration, experience and ideas essential to invigorating responses and developing solutions. Delegates will be challenged by expert speakers and build their networks to prepare for the challenges ahead.

Programme highlights


Andrew Rawnsley, Chief Political Commentator at The Observer on the political lay of the land for housing.


David Smith, Economics Editor at The Sunday Times on the UK and global economic outlook, assessing the risks and opportunities for housing.


Mark Henderson, Home Group and Paul Edwards, HouseMark with a renewed focus on housing association performance and transparency.
