We look forward to welcoming you on 20 October to The Housing Forum’s 2021 National Conference, ’Fit for the Future’ – a premier housing event.

Our sector has shown great resilience and through our webinars, working groups and member interaction, The Housing Forum has supported innovation and agile approaches to dealing with the pandemic and the challenges of delivering more quality affordable homes.


The theme of taking opportunities and tackling challenges will see this major event provide a catalyst for continued progress across housing.

Leading sector figures will cover the full range of issues and opportunities on key themes outlined in the agenda. There’s an exhibition and networking opportunities culminating in an early evening drinks reception to formally launch the Futures Network – the next generation of leaders supporting advancements in our sector.

We’ve had over 1600 attend webinars so far this year and successfully held hybrid events so whether you are attending in person or online you’ll be able to take part in this premier knowledge exchange.



INSIGHTS: on the way forward for the housing market; its prospects and challenges from opinion leaders, government and The Housing Forum members

UNDERSTANDING: of the implications of the profound change Decarbonisation will have on the housing sector and what government needs to do to support the significant changes required.

INSPIRATION: take back to your workplace innovative approaches and practical solutions to dealing with the challenges and taking advantage of the opportunities.
