We are running a series of free in-person one-day Retrofit Essentials bootcamps across England throughout 2023. Based on our online CPD accredited Retrofit Essentials Course, participants will follow presentations from experts, and have opportunities to ask questions and workshop with peers.
Aimed at housing associations, local authorities, combined authorities, and any other registered providers, bootcamps are open to all - whether you've never engaged with retrofit before, or if you've submitted an SHDF bid in previous waves.

Retrofit Essentials: Online
From 2022 to 2023, SHRA ran an eight-week online Retrofit Essentials course, a CPD-accredited learning programme designed to provide social housing professionals with the essential knowledge needed to create a retrofit strategy.
Participants joined weekly 90-minute webinars, comprising an expert masterclass and a chance to ask questions, join discussions, and interact with fellow social housing professionals in breakout sessions. From advice on building a business case and understanding PAS2035 through to resident engagement, attendees were equipped with the essential building blocks to deliver a social housing retrofit project.
These programmes have now come to an end.
