In-House Housing Association Finance

In-House Training

Aim

Our housing association finance session provides a fully updated introduction and overview to Housing Association Finance. Delegates will gain an update on the latest trends in housing associations finance.

Content

These sessions provide a solid grounding in the basics of housing association finance including:

  • The financial environment in which housing associations work
  • Regulatory requirements including Viability and Value for Money
  • Income & Expenditure Accounts, Balance Sheets and Cash Flows
  • How Development and other Capital Expenditure is financed
  • Budgeting, Budgetary Control and Risk Management
  • Asset Management and Treasury Management
  • Developments in government policy including ‘right to buy’, rent reductions, pay to stay and welfare reform
  • The implications of the Housing & Planning Act 2016 – including low cost home-ownership
  • The future funding of Supported and Sheltered housing and community investment

Context

Housing Associations face significant financial challenges because of which it is now more important than ever that everyone involved in the governance, management and operations of housing associations has a working knowledge of housing association finance.

Housing associations are being innovative in their response with many developing new sources of income including increased service charges and having ambitious new build and regeneration schemes.

Outcomes

Those who attend will gain an overview of the finances of housing associations and will keep up to date with developments. There will be opportunities for networking. The session is also accompanied by a very useful book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: “All You Want to Know about Housing Association Finance 2017”

Who Should Attend

Those who need to understand the basics of housing association finance but do not need to be experts. Whether you are a Housing Manager, Board Member, Tenant Representative or even a member of the Finance Team; whether you are in a housing association or in a council that has partnerships with housing associations, you could benefit from one of our sessions.
