People are at the heart of what our organisations: our people shape our values, how we operate and how we, as organisations, are perceived.

SFHA’s Housing Now, Housing’s Future: Our Sector, Our People Conference, taking place on 4 March, aims to explore and highlight different perspectives on the key issues facing our workplaces in 2021 and beyond.
