For the North and by the North

In the midst of continued political and economic uncertainty across the UK, the role of the North in creating a balanced and prosperous future for the country couldn’t be of more importance. The Northern Powerhouse has put the North on the map, not just nationally but across the globe, it is becoming a recognised brand. But for us to truly recognise the absolute potential of the North, cross-sector and cross-government support is essential.

The need for improved infrastructure, education and employment opportunities across the North are well recognised. But if we are to achieve the growth ambitions set out by the Northern Powerhouse, we need to build good quality, affordable and secure homes where people choose to live.

Housing is an integral part of building thriving communities and economies. That’s why Homes for the North continue to campaign and lobby Government to put homes at the heart of Northern growth.

With our media partners Northern Housing & Homes North Magazines, Homes for the North are delighted to bring to you our first ever conference event to share our research, priorities for the North and develop our collective Northern influence. Together, we can build an even better future – for the North and by the North.
