SETUP (South East Training Uniting People) provides low cost training and networking opportunities for residents whose landlords are members.

Training and Networking

The subjects are chosen in consultation with our residents and include such wide ranging topics as money advice, social media and green issues to such regular stalwarts as food hygiene and 1st Aid.

The most popular reason for our residents to take part in our training events is that they enjoy being able to network, share ideas and get feedback from initiatives carried out elsewhere, as residents from our members are invited to showcase their projects to other residents and acting as mentors, if they wish to implement similar schemes.

Details of the most current training programme can be found here


We also adapt our events to the needs of our residents and have found that the demand is for shorter networking sessions on specific topics, rather than all-day conferences and we are increasingly organising these.

This has proved very successful with our most recent achievement being a Scrutiny Networking event with guests from Viridian Housing Association, runners up in the TPAS awards.  We are continuing this joint working with Viridian over the next few months to ensure our residents benefit from their experience and success.

Our annual conferences attract more than 50 delegates and give an opportunity to offer residents ‘taster’ courses on different topics before committing themselves later to more intensive and concentrated training programme
