Design Council is proud to sponsor the Festival of Place and the Pineapple Awards, which will be the summer’s leading event in the built environment calendar. Our experience and evidence shows that well-designed neighbourhoods can have a transformational impact on us all, improving health and wellbeing, enhancing the environment and stimulating the economy. We look forward to sharing our expertise and generating discussion with a range of first-class speakers and professionals, and to celebrating the very best in urban design – the places that we want to see created in towns and cities of the future
Executive director, finance - Silva Homes
"Excellent format, combining bite-size insights into a number of key topics from a wide range of speakers. Apps for Q&A and in-conference polling were used effectively by the chair."
"The Social Housing Finance Conference provided a fantastic learning opportunity on how the leading social housing associations are financing themselves and how this impacts their organisation."
Executive management team - Local Space
"This is one of the best value for money conferences I have attended with every session providing a useful insight at the very least and some being unmissable."
"All Chief Executives and Directors of Housing Associations should attend this Conference!"
Finance director - Arhag Housing Association
"As a newbie to the Housing Sector, having moved over from the charity sector - one appreciates that finance is finance, but the conference presented probing questions to answer or walk away and consider. Personally, I learnt a lot and had a good day to soak up SH Finance issues and knowledge. Well worth attending!"
