Meet the Housing Regulator
Meet the Housing Regulator on 15 July 2021 11am-12pm
The Regulator of Social Housing (RSH) is the independent regulator for registered providers of social housing like Rooftop Housing. “Registered providers” include housing associations and local authorities. The regulator oversees what Rooftop does and the RSH follows a role set by government and sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
The RSH wants to find out more about what really matters to tenants in social housing, so they are organising events for you to have your say.
On 15 July 2021, you can meet representatives of the Housing Regulator in an online event hosted by the National Housing Federation. It will be an opportunity to fine out information about social housing regulation and for you to ask questions.
Last year, the government published its Social Housing White Paper. In this, it asked the RSH to change the way it carries out consumer regulation in social housing, and to create a new consumer function. The RSH want to hear from social housing tenants to better understand what matters to you.
This will help them to make the right decisions about how the new consumer function should work in practice. This is the first set of webinars in a programme of tenant engagement.
During this first webinar, you’ll hear about how regulation in the social housing sector works at the moment and the changes the White Paper is introducing, and about the opportunities coming up to engage further with the Regulator of Social Housing.
The aim of the session is to provide a clear picture of how regulation works and to equip participants with the knowledge you need to fully engage in conversations about regulatory change.
There will be time for questions in the webinar – please feel free to submit any in advance or ask on the day. The webinar is open to all residents but will be most relevant for tenants that rent their homes.
If you are unable to make this time, you can sign up to the webinar and will be sent a recording after the event.
