Governance with Assurance: Learning the lessons. Following the publication of the HCA’s independent report by Altair Cosmopolitan Housing Group – Lessons learned, the Northern Housing Consortium and Altair are holding a one day conference in York on 7 October. Join senior housing professionals and board members to discuss and debate the outcomes and recommendations for the future.

Altair’s 4th annual "Skills for the future" survey (in association with Inside Housing) is now live. Please take part and let us know how affordable housing providers are developing their approaches to skills and career development to meet the challenges and opportunities faced by the sector. All entrants will be entered into a prize draw to win £500 of Marks & Spencer vouchers, or a donation of the same amount to a charity of your choice, courtesy of Altair.
