National Social Housing Safety and Compliance Week is an annual campaign dedicated to shining a spotlight on safety. 

It supports Dame Judith Hackitt’s calls for the housing sector to act faster in addressing safety issues and promoting a culture of safety. With the introduction of The Social Housing (Regulation) Act 2023, we also believe that Safety and Compliance Week has a role in helping to redefine the standards of social housing in the UK.

Now in its third year, National Social Housing Safety & Compliance Week will launch a new movement called ‘Together for Safety’. This movement recognises that no one person, department or organisation can deliver safe homes for residents – it involves the whole supply chain coming together.

Together for Safety will focus on four key strands:

  • Together with Residents – resident engagement; working with representatives and panels; recognising resident’s voices and supporting them to keep themselves, their families and communities safe
  • Together as a Sector – coming together with fellow Association of Safety and Compliance Professionals (ASCP), peers, contractors and suppliers to help tackle joint challenges, share best practice and raise standards
  • Together with Colleagues – working effectively and with joint purpose with other teams such as procurement, finance and customer service; ensuring that the safety message is heard and prioritised throughout our organisations
  • Together with the Authorities – responding to, and working effectively within, a new Regulatory landscape
    Throughout the week there are a number of ‘Together for Safety’ sessions running with an inspirational line up of speakers.
