Finders free training events for the Private and Public Sector.

Finders International is running more conferences, both online and in person, over the next few months, which are all free to attend.

As we are members of the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Certification Service, attendance at these events is recognised as educational learning that conforms to CPD guidelines.

The first event is The Community Action on Empty Homes conference which takes place on 14 September at the Friends House, Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ – This conference is aimed at everyone who works in housing in the public sector to look at what can be done to ensure more homes are returned to the housing market. Action on Empty Homes will also be launching their Community Action on Empty Homes Toolkit. Again, the event is free, and you can register here to attend.

Finders are also hosting the Empty Homes Classroom Session on 29 September, aimed at people in the north-west of England who work in association with empty properties. Specialist solicitors, Fiona Anthony and Chris Burgess from NP Law (Norfolk County Council) will be delivering training on legal solutions for empty properties.

The training course will cover compulsory purchase orders and enforced sales, explain the circumstances in which these solutions might be used and help attendees understand the processes involved in pursuing these routes.

The event takes place on 29 September 2022 from 9:30am – 3:30pm at the Etc. Venues, 11 Portland St, Manchester, M1 3HU. Register here to attend.
