Scottish Empty Homes Conference 2019

20 November

Riddle’s Court, 322 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh

Opening doors, unlocking potential

The Scottish Empty Homes Partnership hosts the 9th Scottish Empty Homes Conference 2019. The day is aimed at Empty Homes Practitioners, Elected Members, Housing Development Staff, Housing Associations, Community Groups and others with an interest in private sector empty homes work. Join us to look at how this type of work can meet the challenges we are facing today and help to deliver the long-term vision for housing in Scotland.
As ever we will have a packed agenda of speakers and the opportunity to choose from several workshops. Who knows – you might even be our Howdens Scottish Empty Homes Champion of the Year 2019!
