ROCC Attend Direct Works Forum
ROCC attended the quarterly seminar of the Direct Works Forum held at Ansty Hall Hotel near Coventry. There were representatives from circa forty housing associations and local authorities present.
There was an excellent broad range of presentations, covering employment law in relation to agency staff and the affect that the changes to the compulsory retirement age will have in Social Housing organisations. There were also sessions on gas safety qualifications and the effectiveness of carbon monoxide detectors from Corgi and CoGDEM. Ian Rumsden from Together Housing presented a very interesting piece on their experiences from piloting the Tenants Cashback scheme.
There were lively discussions on a number of the topics, together with an excellent turkey dinner no doubt appreciated by all.
