With various priorities surrounding the safety agenda, Net Zero, building and fire safety, resident engagement, and building new homes, while balancing the challenges and major responsibility of meeting regulatory compliance within social housing, such as electrical, fire and gas safety across the array of workstreams. We want to support and give back to the social housing sector, HQN members, by facilitating discussions and sharing best practice with a collaborative approach within and out of the sector to drive long-term improvement.”

Working together, Aico and HQN will create a platform for discussion, clarity, and the opportunity to share best practice around all aspects of safety and compliance.
