Victoria Winckler, Director of the Bevan Foundation, addressed the annual conference of Community Housing Cymru on Friday 2nd December.

Speaking to more than 100 delegates from a wide range of backgrounds, Victoria said that while there was still very little clarity about what Brexit meant, that should not be used as an excuse for inaction. She said outlined the actions that leaders in housing and other areas of public service should take, including using their procurement and other powers to strengthen the economy, promoting good community relations and reinvigorating democracy.
