Join us at the only conference for rural housing associations, local authorities and stakeholders. This year’s conference promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

We’ll bring together key figures from across the rural housing sector to debate the key issues facing rural housing today,

from the need to influence policy and increase development to showcasing housing associations’ innovative solutions to delivering sustainable rural communities.

Delegates will:

• hear from politicians and rural experts

• join in a debate exploring the issues around rural development

• be part of the campaign to deliver more affordable rural housing

• find solutions to build more homes

• see how building more homes can increase diversity, create jobs and drive growth

• collaborate with others to gain political support to address rural issues.


S1. Changing demographics: an offer for everyone How can we create a truly balanced and sustainable rural community?

It’s essential that we provide the right services to older people, and at the same time offer employment opportunities for the younger generation.

You’ll hear from others who are successfully delivering in rural communities and explore ways to rise to these challenges.

S2. Celebrating innovation: rural housing associations leading the way

Housing associations are creating some of the most innovative models of housing and service provision in our rural areas.

We look at best practice and the positive impact for both the rural communities and the environment.

S3. Know your neighbour Housing associations are tackling loneliness and isolation in rural communities in lots of different ways.

We’ll explore practical examples from housing associations and measure the impact of this work, discussing the challenges it brings.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to network with your rural colleagues at the only rural conference for housing associations, local authorities and rural stakeholders.

Join us after the conference for networking drinks as we launch the Institute for Public Policy Research report on rural affordable housing.
