About the conference
Future of London hosted its annual conference as the sector starting facing the prospect of a major market readjustment, putting the viability of schemes across the capital in question.
Affordable Housing: Overcoming crisis through collaboration (5 October 2022), focused on public/partnerships and funding models for affordable housing.
The conference brought together practitioners from across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors and built on building on insights from our Affordable Housing programme.

- Affordable housing – are we delivering?
- Can collaboration help deliver the housing London needs?
- 101 on partnership types
- Collaborative approaches to housing allocations
- Innovations in collaborative finance models
