Clarion Housing Group is one of eight social housing providers represented on the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s Social Sector (Building Safety) Engagement Best Practice Group.
Each social landlord represented in the group will be joined by a resident from their respective housing stock to help share best practice and challenge existing approaches towards ensuring resident safety.
Group members will decide on and implement short-term pilots to be trialled over a six month period covering a wide range of approaches to keeping residents informed on the safety of their building. Following the six month period, the panel will present its findings to the government which will be used to inform and develop future policy.
Suzanne Whitehead, Senior Technical Fire Manager at Clarion Housing Group and panel member, said:
“Clarion is really pleased to be one of the housing associations represented on MHCLG’s Best Practice Group to improve the sector’s approach to communicating with residents about the safety of their homes. We look forward to exploring innovative and practical solutions to enhance resident engagement in this regard. As a responsible landlord, the safety of our residents is our number one priority.”
