JRF in partnership with the Chartered Institute for Housing are hosting this one day conference.
The conference builds on the recent Housing White Paper, and will focus on the existing private rented sector stock.
The event will look at how the private rented sector currently affects costs and living standards, including hearing from those currently living in the sector. It will highlight a number of policy recommendations from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s Anti-Poverty Strategy, which we believe could improve the sector as a source of accommodation for people in poverty. This includes incentivising landlords to raise standards – something which CIH has been calling for over the last few years.
The event workshops will showcase best practice of what is being done in other countries and devolved nations, ethical lettings agencies and successful initiatives from local authorities.
