Hosted by Liverpool City Council and the Central Liverpool Primary Care Network | Thursday 21 July 2022 | 11 am – 4 pm | The Florrie, 377 Mill Street, Liverpool L8 4RF
Are you a Liverpool organisation that comes into contact with or supports private sector tenants living in poor housing? Liverpool City Council’s Private Sector Housing team and the Central Liverpool Primary Care Network are hosting a learning event about the city’s new Landlord Licensing scheme.
Landlord Licensing launched in April 2022 in the 16 wards in the city with the worst private rented housing conditions and will be in operation for the next five years.
It gives the council additional powers to drive up standards and keep vulnerable tenants safe, such as tackling fire and electrical safety hazards, excess cold and damp and preventing and tackling anti-social behaviour.
The wards included are: Central, Riverside, Greenbank, Kensington, Picton, Tuebrook & Stoneycroft, County, Anfield, St Michael’s, Princes Park, Kirkdale, Old Swan, Warbreck, Wavertree, Fazakerley and Everton.
A key focus is reaching out to engage with tenants and support organisations to spread the word about the scheme.
The event will include presentations about Landlord Licensing, the work of Central Primary Care Network and case study examples of people that can be assisted.
The purpose of this event is to promote better health and well-being in private sector housing, so if community teams, social prescribers and well-being link workers are informed about how the select licensing system can work and how they can refer cases in, they can give the best advice to people who need support with private rented sector housing.
Lunch will be provided.
Spaces are limited so early sign-up is recommended.
