EVENT: How can we build better homes and neighbourhoods? Launch of Understanding Society – the UK Household Longitudinal Study’s annual findings report

On 10th December, Understanding Society will launch its annual findings report, Insights 2015 at an event for policy makers in the housing sector.

Findings from the Housing chapter show that we are seeing a trend towards lower housing mobility, more instability and lower quality housing for many people. This evidence will be presented by research author, Dr Paul Sissons from the Centre for Business in Society, Coventry University and discussed by the panel:

  • Terrie Alafat, Chief Executive, Chartered Institute of Housing
  • Matt Bell, Group Head of External Affairs, Berkeley Group
  • Shane Brownie, Head of Research and Analysis, National Housing Federation
  • Stephen Howlett, Chief Executive, Peabody Housing Trust

Aimed at housing providers, house builders, policy makers, local authorities, mortgage providers, charities and campaigners, delegates will have the opportunity to hear the panel debate the changing landscape of the housing market, discuss key policy goals for its future, and reflect on the latest evidence from Understanding Society.

The event takes place at the Royal Institute of British Architects, London from 4-7pm.
