Housing & homelessness network

In last year’s Budget, the government announced a £60m pa grant programme to scale up community-led housing for 5 years in England. There has been discussion and collaboration between government and foundations that are interested in investing in community-led housing including potential to support activities that enhance and add value, as well as considering community-led housing in areas of the country not currently covered by the government programme. This grant programme could be the impetus for turning community-led housing from an important niche into a new a whole new sector of housing and this meeting will explore the role charitable foundations could play in supporting work in this area.

Beyond the balance sheet

The aim of this practical seminar is to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of the overall ‘control environment’ and what might be the warning signs to look out for when assessing organisations for the first time and during routine monitoring. There will be an opportunity to work through case studies and practical examples, and to build up a practical checklist that can be used when making assessments.
