How new housing technology can improve resident wellbeing Webinar (Free)

At a time when technology seems to be taking over our lives, is this really something to be wary of? Have you heard the phrase Smart Homes and thought – what are they going on about?


In this free to members, two-hour session we will explore the ways in which we can harness technology for good. We will look at how things are changing behind the scenes, how we can use it to make our lives that little bit easier and also improve our wellbeing in the process.

We are delighted to have secured three Tpas commercial members (Futr, Envirovent & Gridizen) to provide some insight into how they see the future of technology, and how their organisation is looking to use it to improve the services that residents receive.

Event sponsored by Tpas Commercial Member Gridizen.

Date: Tuesday 15th June, 10am - 12noon

The event is free for Tpas Members and will be held on the Zoom digital platform and booking need to be made through the website.
