Chief executives of housing associations have their chance to get their hands on a rundown of how Government policy is really likely to affect their work, at their annual conference this week.’Six Big Pictures and Social Housing Investment’ draws on recent Government policies and initiatives to give social landlords a clear picture of how they can continue to both operate succesfully and pursue housing investment.

Stephen Duckworth, author and Director of Housing Finance and New Initiatives at the National Housing Federation, said it was important that landlords independent of Government, saw the big picture of Government thinking.

The Federation’s annual conference for chief executives is underway this week in Manchester.
