Speaker: Kate Webb, Head of Policy and Research , Shelter        

Kate Webb, Head of Policy and Research at Shelter, will talk about the opportunities and challenges for housing in the wake of the 2017 Election.

Are we about to witness the revival of social housing or will its long-term decline continue unchecked? Will the next Government offer households unable to access homeownership a viable alternative? And how have NGOs and other bodies really fared in driving housing up the political agenda?
