An Introduction to the Social Housing Sector & Inquests
Providers of social housing are involved in the provision, maintenance and oversight of the homes and accommodation of a significant section of the population.
In what circumstances might such organisations be required to navigate the coronial and inquest system?
When might an organisation seek to be involved? What are the implications in terms of the legal framework, procedure and practicalities?
How might internal investigations be relevant and what may be explored at inquest about systems previously in place be it for residents, employees or contractors?
Setting out the relevant legal and procedural framework, this live broadcast session will also provide practical guidance through the use of relevant case studies.
