Six peer learning webinars to catch up on this June


Boost your retrofit knowledge with six peer learning presentations from experienced social housing providers.


    As we head into summer, we're reflecting on all the insightful peer learning presentations that we have shared so far in 2023.  You can access all SHRA's peer learning presentations on-demand on our website.

    These sessions provide a valuable opportunity to hear about challenges and learnings from previous retrofit projects from those who helped deliver them.  Follow the links below to watch presentations on a range of topics from councils and housing groups.
