Benefits of attending

The global pandemic has thrown up many many challenges, but also many opportunities, now more than ever our sector is at tipping point in lots of areas. We need to ensure that we continue to work, share ideas and best practice to inform and act in a positive way so that we can tip the balance in favour of our aims, ensuring that everyone has a safe place to call home.

Good housing is essential to our health and wellbeing. If there was ever any doubt about this, it has been well and truly extinguished by the Coronavirus epidemic which has cast new light on the inequalities within our society. People without a secure place to live or space to work and for children to learn and play have been hit much harder by the pandemic.

At the same time, the amazing work of social landlords has ensured that tenants and communities have been supported and that food and other essentials are being distributed to those who need them. As we start to adjust to a ‘new normal’ after Coronavirus, we need to be asking what lessons can be learned from the housing sector’s response to the pandemic and how can we build better relationships with our partners in health and social care?

We will hear about iHub’s work to support the housing sector in Scotland in dealing with the immediate impact of the Coronavirus outbreak and longer term plans to promote better practice and partnership working between housing, health and social care. We will also hear how Bield has had to adapt their services and what support they offered to tenants as well as their experience of working with partners in health and social care.
