UK Roll out of Forum for sharing key industry issues in Social Housing

For over a decade, CORGI has been involved with the North West Inter Authority Gas Forum which meets on a quarterly basis to discuss key industry issues, benchmark and share best practice. Attended by senior management from Social Housing organisations from across the north-west, the Forum has proved to be a valuable networking group as well as advising on the latest products and services available within the sector.

CORGI’s Commercial Director, Eddie Stanton commented: “The Forum provides an excellent platform for delegates to network with their peer group so as to share their expertise and knowledge. We have been a participant from the very early stages and have seen the popularity and value of the meetings grow.  We felt it was a format that would work in other locations across the UK and are ideally positioned to facilitate a roll out process, particularly as we are so closely associated to the principles of all things ‘gas safety’.”

In addition to the north-west Forum, CORGI has now organised a programme of Forums across the UK, with the first being held in Glasgow in February. This was well attended and received and will now be held on a quarterly basis. The next Forum took place in London on 24th April and the numbers attending were very high. Eddie Stanton commented:  “The response was outstanding – we even had to change to a larger venue to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend!’’

Further forums are now planned for these locations:

  • Bristol
  • London
  • Glasgow
  • Birmingham
  • Yorkshire
  • Durham
  • other dates & venues tbc
