The needs of residents are changing and residents in general needs homes are more vulnerable than we have seen in this past, not least those who are vulnerable through circumstance.  

What does this mean for your approach to communications, including the languages that is used? There is a lot to consider in the Ombudsman’s new spotlight report Relationship of Equals,’ including examples of good practice.  

In this webinar we will explore the recommendations in the report in more detail and learn from the resident perspective.

Coming Soon 

Getting the communications right on 
disrepair
Date, time and speakers to be confirmed. 

Getting repairs right is the number one priority for residents. How we communicate around repairs can have a big impact on resident experience and how they feel about their landlord.  

When we get it wrong, it is understandable residents seek redress elsewhere, including through ‘no win, no fee’ law firms.   

What role can communications play in ensuring residents understand what they can expect from their landlord when things do go wrong?  

This session will explore how we can communicate effectively with residents where there are cases of disrepair, particularly learning from a resident perspective.  

Crisis communications 
Date, time and speakers to be confirmed. 

Any landlord could find themselves in the spotlight over a multitude of issues – so it is vital that communications teams are equipped to handle a crisis effectively.  

This session will explore how communications professionals can prepare for a crisis, and the ways they can protect (and even enhance) their organisation’s reputation when a crisis hits in the media. A more detailed focus for anyone who came to the March 2023 session – and a chance for anyone new to join. 

More info coming soon!
