The Big Question

19 October 2017, Cardiff

The Big Question 2017
View the programme

Is Welsh housing balanced at the cliff edge? Have any of us ever faced anything like the hailstorm of political and economic upheaval that’s currently raining down on us? Will Brexit send us spiralling into the economic abyss? How will it affect our supply chains and the availability of labour? What change will come, and how will the sector react to the events at Grenfell Tower? And in the toughest of triple whammies - we have the juggernaut of continued welfare reform racing towards us.

What will be the cost? To our balance sheets, to our tenants, to our staff. And what would be the cost if we fail to adequately respond? Does the sector, does the provision of affordable housing in Wales, simply fall off a cliff? At The BIG Question 2017 we’ll explore the solutions.

Essential details

Where: The Exchange Hotel, Mount Stuart Square, Cardiff, CF10 5FQ
