National Housing Finance Conference – More than just Building Houses

In March 2019, GRANTfinder attended the National Housing Federation’s (NHF) annual social housing finance conference and exhibition at the ACC in Liverpool.

The GRANTfinder team exhibited our grants portal and funding support services to over 1,300 attendees who were all eager to connect, learn, and share with each other, as well and nabbing themselves some of the prizes on offer and of course the coveted branded pens!

Away from the networking hub of the exhibition centre, Kate Henderson, Chief Executive of the NHF, opened the first day by touching on the overall theme of the event of ‘thriving through disruption’. Henderson stated that in the face of current economic uncertainty there is a consensus for the need to invest in social housing, not only to meet housing demand, but to also help re-build trust with communities and contribute to stability in the country.

Across the two-days, and over 50 sessions, many different topics were discussed from all corners of housing finance, but there were four clear themes that dominated the event.
