We are holding our 2020 seminar 'All You Want to Know about Scottish Housing Association Finance' in Edinburgh in April 2020.
This seminar is a useful introduction and overview of Scottish Housing Association Finance. If you are not an expert but would like to understand the basics this is the seminar for you!
Social housing is becoming increasingly important in Scotland at a time of rising demand for affordable housing. The Scottish Government has reformed the Scottish Housing Regulator, ended the ‘Right to Buy’ and is promoting and funding an ambitious development programme. The Scottish Housing Regulator’s new approach emphasises ‘Value for Money’. The United Kingdom government is ‘reforming’ welfare with significant implications for Scottish tenants and landlords, but some welfare powers have now been devolved to Scotland.
Scottish housing associations therefore face significant challenges. There is a need to meet the Scottish Government's aspirations for development despite reduced ‘financial headroom’ while managing a range of issues such as rent affordability, pension provision and welfare reform. Housing Associations are using their assets more intensively to invest in existing and new housing stock.Whether you are in a Housing Association, Local Authority or another organisation with an interest in Scottish housing; whether you are a Housing Manager, Tenant Representative, Board Member or even a member of the Housing Finance Team, you will need some knowledge of housing association finance.
The session will answer the following questions:
