Social homes and public perceptions: what housing professionals can do to challenge stigma

09 May 2017, webinar

About the event

Time: 1.00pm-2.00pm

Speakers: Jonathan Conway, community relationship manager, Newport City Homes

Kevin Barry, director of housing and communities, Cynon Taf Housing

Chair: Julie Nicholas, new homes manager, Monmouthshire Housing Association

Benefits of attending

Social housing faces a huge amount of stigma; from negative stories and documentaries in the mainstream media, to communities challenging the development of affordable housing. How do we, as housing professionals, play our part to challenge myths, advocate for our tenants and support our communities to help change the poor public perception of social homes?
