Orbit's Welfare Reform session well received at CIH Conference

Orbit East and Orbit South's Head of Income, Annelie Sernevall, delivered a very well received presentation on 'Welfare Reform - one year on' at the 2014 Chartered Institue of Housing (CIH) Housing Advice Conference last week. 

Around 30 delegates attended Annelie's session, with feedback from organisers showing that the presentation was greatly appreciated and fitted well within the very successful conference programme.

Together with showcasing Orbit's Welfare Reform work to date, Annelie covered topics such as Orbit's plans to tackle the implications and impacts of Welfare Reform going forwards, and some of the challenges, concerns and considerations we face.

The event was really well received by delegates overall and the conference received excellent feedback, with CIH organisers commenting that this was an excellent result as it is often hard to get the programme of events right.
