Our Communications Manager, Claire Henderson welcomed delegates to the first Communications in Housing roundtable events of 2020. The day kicked of with a short update from the NHC, highlighting the following:
The APPG for Housing in the North provides a forum for Parliamentarians to discuss and advance housing and related policy across the three Northern regions and seeks to ensure the needs and ambitions of Northern communities are addressed in housing policy development.
As Secretariat, the Northern Housing Consortium supports the APPG in facilitating a work programme that has in recent years concentrated on the regeneration of mixed tenure communities, housing an ageing population, and the impact of poor-quality housing on health and wellbeing. See below an update for the APPG:
- Launched an Inquiry into the North’s PRS last year
- The APPG has been reformed since the recent General Election
- The Inquiry into property standards in the North’s private rented sector is ongoing (evidence sessions being held Feb & March)
- Engagement sessions are taking place with members during March & April
- The Inquiry concludes in June with recommendations
MyNHC is an online portal to make your life with us easier. Using the My NHC portal members can book events, manage and download documents, edit their profile and email preferences and much more. Many of you will already be signed up to MyNHC but we ask if you could share this information as delegates will need to be signed up to attend events and see their engagement with the NHC.
We encourage members to share the MyNHC link within their organisations.
