Just a couple of days until the Healthy Homes Conference, Friday 9th February

Friday 9th February 2024, 9:15 am – 4:30 pm, online.

There are a few places left.
REGISTER NOW! It’s free.

The conference will discuss how to tackle the unacceptably high number of homes in Skye and Lochalsh that are in need of repair and upgrades. These homes were identified in the Healthy Homes survey, completed by over 400 local residents. The homes are cold, mouldy, damp, draughty and expensive to keep warm, presenting potential health hazards to their occupants. Residents said the main barriers to improving their homes were high upgrade costs, no suitable grants, no builders available and not knowing what they needed to do to make things better.

Register to have your say about how to improve homes in our area.

We have put together an exciting conference programme to look these barriers from different angles, and to discuss solutions. We hope that many residents will attend, so that your voice is clearly heard, and the discussions are grounded in reality.

Have a look at the fantastic speaker line-up  below. You can download the programme here.

The conference will be opened by Housing Minister, Paul McLennan and chaired by our local councillor Calum Munro. Ariane Burgess MSP, will also speak, along with many  experienced local and national practitioners, and representatives of agencies and policy making.
