Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group Annual Conference & Exhibition
The SLCNG Annual Conference and Exhibition is taking place at the St Johns Hotel, Solihull, Birmingham. For more information please visit: www.slcngconference.com
About the event
The Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group (SLCNG) is the UK’s leading housing based organisation specialising in delivering effective solutions to anti-social behaviour and this flagship annual event is the largest national two day conference concentrating specifically on Anti Social Behaviour (ASB). ASB has been consistently in the public spotlight throughout the last year with increased attention focussed on the role that housing providers play in improving the lives and safety of individuals and communities.
As a result of the riots, steps towards mending “broken Britain” have been taken and In May 2012 the Government released its white paper, Putting Victims First – more effective responses to anti-social behaviour. The proposed legislative changes will localise and streamline the system, helping landlords tackle anti social behaviour more effectively.
2012-13 is set to be a year of change with the introduction of locally elected police and crime commissioners coming into power in November. This will have an impact on the funding available for community safety and partnership arrangements. The conference will examine these and other reforms in detail and consider how organisations can prepare for and help shape them. Do not miss this opportunity to learn from high profile speakers and expert practitioners. The programme contains a range of keynote sessions and workshops, designed for social landlords, local authorities, partner agencies and everyone working in ASB service delivery. It will explore new ideas and examine the strategic and operational challenges that face us all. This year there will also be a chance to pose your questions to the experts in a question time style session, hosted by BBC’s Home Editor, Mark Easton.
On day one the conference and exhibition will be formally opened by Roger Griffiths, Chair of SLCNG.
Following an opening address by Roger delegates will have the opportunity to attend one of a range of breakout sessions dealing with: The government’s ASB white paper; ; demonstrating accountability and credibility in the new community safety landscape; using perpetrator profiling to identify the most effective interventions; the role of social landlords in ending gang and youth violence; and how landlords can support young people towards independence.
During the afternoon, a ‘Question Time’ style panel session hosted by BBC’s, Home Editor, Mark Easton will provide delegates with the opportunity to improve their understanding of the issues and challenge the experts on key topics.
Day two starts with a keynote session in which Sue Strickland from the DCLG, will offer insight into the Government’s plans for turning around the lives of 120,000 troubled families in the next three years.
Breakout sessions will include sessions on: the need to review tenancy agreements, policies, procedures and deal with other ‘housekeeping’ matters; what social and community justice means in practice; understanding and engaging communities to achieve positive outcomes; managing vulnerability and, promoting equality; and operating the community trigger. After lunch delegates will hear from Sir Charles Pollard, founder of Restorative Justice Throughout the conference, delegates will have the opportunity to interact with speakers and discuss how good practice can be shared to continually improve knowledge and expertise in making homes and neighbourhoods safer.
