A look at the revitalisation of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and what this means in practical terms.

Challenges facing the Housing Executive in Northern Ireland, such as funding and the disrepair of existing stock have been pressing for some time now. The recent announcement by the Minister for Communities revealing major change on the horizon was, therefore, a significant one.

Why attend?

Central to the minister’s plan to increase stock and reduce social housing stress, was the revitalisation of the Housing Executive through the reform of its landlord arm into a co-operative or mutual organisation, allowing it to borrow, invest in its homes and ultimately build again.

This webinar will explore what this means in practical terms for the Housing Executive and its tenants, examining previous examples of mutualisation and stock transfer across the UK, both successful and unsuccessful, and also the challenges, both financially and operationally in rolling out this reform.

This webinar is suitable for housing and associated professionals, third sector organisations, and those working in finance, governance, and policy development.
