All You Want to Know about Scottish Social Housing Finance 2018


June 2018

Social housing is becoming increasingly important in Scotland at a time of rising demand for affordable housing.  Terms on which loans are available are less favourable than in the past. The Scottish Government has passed the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014, reformed the Scottish Housing Regulator, ended the ‘Right to Buy’ on 31st July 2016 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 local authorities and housing associations therefore face significant challenges, not least the need to meet the Scottish Government's aspirations for development.

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, Councillor or even a member of the Housing Finance Team, you will need some knowledge of social housing finance.

The session will answer the following questions:

  • What financial environment are Scottish local authorities and housing associations working in?
  • How do the finances of Scottish local authority housing services work?
  • How do the finances of Scottish Housing Associations work?
  • How is the development of new social housing funded?
Many people have already attended and benefited from this seminar. The last session was well received with delegates saying that the information provided was very relevant, the quality of the presentation was excellent, and the training met their needs fully. They described the session as interesting, useful and thorough.

The session is accompanied by a very useful book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: ‘All You Want to Know about Scottish Social Housing Finance 2018’
