(Past) 11-12 October 2023 – Social Integration Topic Group Meeting, London

18 July 2023

On 11-12 October, the Social Integration Topic Group will be heading to London for a joint meeting with the European Federation for Living (EFL).

How do we measure social value? How can we involve communities in shaping these evaluations? These can be challenging questions for public and social housing providers. Therefore, at the next Social Integration Topic Group meeting, we will share knowledge on promoting social inclusion in housing. In particular, we will explore social value measurement systems and tools.

Social actors, including charitable foundations, can play an important role in maximising life chances. This ranges from helping people to secure jobs or training opportunities and develop digital skills, to assisting with managing money, bills, and tenancies. Participants will learn about the role of charitable foundations across Europe. We will examine how their activities link to environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability-linked loans, where interest rates can be linked to meeting agreed social outcomes.

We will examine a ‘whole place’ approach to regeneration, reflecting on how social value is delivered in everyday practice.

Site visit: social inclusion in housing

Through site visits, we will experience the result of a ‘whole place’ approach to regeneration. This will allow us to reflect on how social value is delivered in everyday practice, by considering the physical, environmental, cultural, and economic well being of an area.
