The Housing Plus Academy is a partnership between leading housing associations and local authorities.
Since November 2015 we have been bringing people together from across the housing world to take part in knowledge exchange and participative learning. The Academy tackles pressing issues affecting both housing associations and local authority landlords today, particularly welfare reform, financial pressure, energy-saving, work and skills, community enterprise, and resilience.
The Housing Plus Academy aims to reflect the diversity of social housing, its staff, tenants and customers. We particularly welcome representatives from ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities, all ages and particularly younger working-age tenants. We encourage Tenant Management Organisations, Community-Based Housing Associations, Community Land Trusts, tenant co-operatives and smaller housing associations to join.
Following each Housing Plus Academy event (Think Tanks and Workshops), we produce a headline report detailing the most important and key points to come out of the discussions and sessions. These headlines are shared with participants, but also more widely with policymakers, government, and professional housing bodies. You can find all of the headline reports for our Housing Plus Academy event on this webpage.
