By Ruth Brown · 26 January 2022

Our latest webinar has proved a big success with many people attending the session to hear from our panel of knowledgeable and engaging sector experts talking about how to deal with disrepair and damp in social housing.

Thank you to Richard Blakeway, Housing Ombudsman, Donna McCarthy from Devonshires, Sara Woodall from Connexus and Kieran Colgan, Director at ARK for presenting and sharing their insights into this hot topic.

For those of you that missed it – it’s not too late. You can watch the session below.
