Speakers at the PlaceShapers' Community Investment Conference in Birmingham on Monday 19 November highlighted the sector's role in supporting tenants to access the internet ahead of the online Universal Credit system being introduced next October. The benefits of setting up and supporting social enterprises were also discussed as a key way to build social impact.
