Who We Are
The Housing Forum is a unique network of leaders and their supply chains from all sectors in housing development and construction. For almost a decade, we have developed a track record of providing timely advice to help our members maintain their position at the forefront of best practice. At the same time we have been able to present, at short notice, cross sector industry views to government on innovation to be encouraged, or on barriers to continuous improvement.
The Housing Forum is a membership body representing all organisations involved in the construction and repair of housing. Our membership networks span public and private sector, local and national.
The Housing Forum is open to all in the housing sector and includes developers, housebuilders, contractors, housing associations, ALMOS, suppliers, manufacturers, housing specialists and housing consultants
The Housing Forum has a unique place in bringing forward industry informed practical solutions to housing- both new and existing and presenting this to Government, Homes and Communities Agency and throughout the industry.
The Housing Forum is a company limited by guarantee and funded entirely from membership.
The Housing Forum Board is elected by the membership, sets our direction and is balanced to ensure all sectors in house building and construction are involved.
Our activities bring members together to improve market knowledge and industry insight through:
- National conferences
- Regional conferences
- Monthly regional workshops
- Strategic working groups
- Demonstration Projects
- Shared Skills Summits
The Chief Executive is Shelagh Grant, who together with the Executive Team represents The Housing Forum and provides services and activities.
