October Update â€“ The best kind of problem
Hello all â€“
As you may know, FoL is hosting a conference on Delivering Estate Renewal
on Nov 6th. The event will bring our cross-sector network together to assess this compelling but difficult approach to housing and regeneration from strategic and front-line perspectives. We hope to see you there â€“ we hope, in fact, that you've already RSVP'd, because we're pretty much at capacity!
The conference is free to attend thanks to a group of new and established supporters, including Lend Lease
, London Communications Agency
and Lewis Silkin
â€“ and Pollard Thomas Edwards
, who we're delighted to say have stepped beyond being great hosts to becoming core sponsors and joining FoL's steering group
In other happy news, Trust for London â€“
known for its work on poverty and inequality in the Capital â€“ just awarded FoL a three-year, Â£65k grant to help local authorities improve engagement with private landlords, with a focus on raising housing standards and reducing fuel poverty. The work will link directly to our current programme with EDF Energy
As noted below, there's lots more happening, including the 26th Nov Surface Tension
event (which still has space!). We're hiring a team admin
to help with it all, so if you know anyone who likes a lively pace, let us know.
Finally, a warm welcome to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
as our newest member!
Thanks, and see you out there â€“
