About

Good quality housing management is central to providing homes and communities where people want to live. This community of practice enables members to come together and consider what the future of housing management looks like.

This community of practice explores the tools, skills and processes you need to deliver modern and forward looking services that your communities want and need.

Who is it for

This community of practice is for LA members and will meet four times per year. Two of these will be in collaboration with the RSL Housing Management Community of Practice.
