The Strategic Assets & Repairs Forum provides a space for Directors to discuss common issues and share good practice

Time and time again colleagues across the sector tell us they wanted a space to have more frank and honest discussions, to share experiences. Sector specific conferences tend to only cover the highlights, the success stories. This is a forum where open conversation is encouraged, a group where information is shared. Following extensive feedback from Asset and R&M Directors, we developed the Strategic R&M Forum to create a strong peer learning network.

Our members include Directors from some of the UK’s leading Housing Associations.  The membership has grown organically, and the topics are member driven, shaped around the changing needs of the group.  Regularly, members with a particular interest in a topic or relevant experience lead a session, or specify speakers to invite along.

Our Aims

Bring together like minded Senior Directors for collaboration and discussion

Share strategic information and best practice including real examples of successes and failures

Physically meet three times per year and supported by an online forum

Share experiences and metrics for success

Focus on cross-cutting themes and hot topics for the sector

“I have found the forum a great place to discuss and get behind the real issues within the sector in an open and inclusive manner; sharing best practice and how we can influence the future direction of R&M within the sector”. Russell Thompson FCIOB

Executive Director of Property Services, Thirteen Group

“The R&M forum provides a great opportunity to discuss key topics, share information and network in a non conference setting.” David Bolton Director of Property Services, Yorkshire Housing
