  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
