Last week, Brabners and Mitchell Charlesworth brought together experts from across the housing sector with more than 140 delegates as they debated the key issues facing the industry at the North West Housing Conference.
With representatives from housing and data consultancy arc4, the National Housing Federation, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, South Liverpool Homes and Crisis UK all speaking at the event, delegates discussed issues from home ownership to how to solve the housing crisis.
As we prepare to welcome delegates to the North West Housing Conference next month, 4 November at the BT Convention centre in Liverpool, the issue of ownership hits headlines again for the future of the housing sector.
North West businesses will have the opportunity to hear the expert views of some of the leading figures from the housing sector on the wide-ranging changes being faced by social housing providers when the annual North West Housing Conference returns to Liverpool in November.
The conference, now in its fourteenth year will be hosted by Brabners and Mitchell Charlesworth, both leading advisors to the social housing sector with support from a project group made up of Liverpool Mutual Homes, Regenda, ForViva, Symphony Housing Group and South Liverpool Homes.
