Should community led-housing organisations register as providers of social housing (RPs)? Join us to consider both the pros and cons, as well as hearing from the Regulator and a community land trust (CLT) who have been through the process.

This interactive half-day workshop has been designed to equip delegates facing this highly topical process with up-to-date knowledge so you get the best possible outcome for your project.

What will be covered?

  • What does registration involve?
  • What does the Regulator look for?
  • Are there alternatives to becoming an RP?
  • What is it like to go through registration and come out the other side?
  • What does the process entail?

If you are looking for the above questions to be answered and are a community led-housing project thinking about your options, then this workshop is for you.
