A webinar link will be sent each month to the organisation’s key contact to be disseminated internally for anyone who is working in or has an interest in the topic area.

Housing Forum Programme
The Housing Forum is an initiative of the Institute of Public Administration in conjunction with the Housing Agency to create a platform from which persons working in housing can build their knowledge about what is happening in the sector. The Housing Forum offers monthly online webinars; a repository of resource material including reports, research documents, and relevant housing literature and articles and a network for housing practitioners working across the public, voluntary and private housing sectors to develop a platform for best practice. The focus of the forum is on the implementation of government policy within an evolving regulatory framework and on the responsibilities of the various frontline bodies providing and managing housing. Forum membership is available to organisations and includes local authorities, housing associations, state bodies and private sector organisations including financial institutions.
