Member Dinners

The Northern Housing Consortium hosts a number of dinners during the year with Government officials and renowned business leaders.

These dinners allow our members to access individuals in a Chatham House style discussion on topics which are important and relevant to further the influence and work of the housing sector. Past dinners have included:

  • Peter Schofield and Terrie Alafat, DCLG
  • Jon Rouse, DoH
  • Edward Boulderstone, Santander
  • David Silk, HMT

Our Full Members receive invites to these dinners as part of their membership fee, all other members are charged a fee of £50 per dinner to cover the cost of the meal.

If you are interested in sponsoring a dinner please contact Lynda Redshaw.

Sponsorship packages range from £1,000 – £1,500 dependent on the guest and venue of the dinner.

Member Roundtables

The NHC runs a regular series of free member roundtables. The themes and topics focus on the most current issues facing our members with many based on their suggestions.  These have included:

  • Universal Credit
  • Health, Housing & Ageing series
  • Apprenticeship Levy
  • Empty Homes
  • Homelessness
  • Funding for Supported Housing
  • Benefit Cap
  • Fixed Term Tenancies
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Tenancy Sustainability

The sessions provide an opportunity for NHC members to keep updated with the latest policy developments, hear about other members’ approaches, share learning, and connect members to one another. Roundtables take place in an informal setting, designed to encourage discussion and maximise the contribution of all in the room.

The NHC uses Roundtables to gather member intelligence, further understand some of the challenges and good practice across the north, and support members.
