Employment and Skills in Communities Forum

This forum is open to all social housing landlords operating in Northern England. 

This forum seeks to:

  1. Enable connectivity and collaboration between social housing landlords

  2. Enable information sharing to support employment and skills development for social housing residents through:

  1. a social landlord providing a short presentation on the work it undertakes to support its residents into employment at each meeting.

  2. Information about forthcoming bids / services delivered that may be of interest to social landlords

  3. A presentation / discussion on a national policy perspective in the Employment / Skills field of interest to social landlords. Previous presenters have included the Department for Work & Pensions and  Local Enterprise Partnerships.

The agenda is standard  for each meeting

  1. National Policy update from Communities that Work, led by Lynsey Sweeney, Managing Director

  2. A case study by a social housing landlord on how it supports its residents into employment and skills development

  3. A presentation/ discussion on a national policy perspective in the Employment/ Skills field that is of interest to social landlords

The forum meets once every 2 months, on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm, on the second week of every other month.
