Professional skills and competences for community-based action in housing market renewal

Kasim, Rozilah and Alexander, Keith and Hudson, John (2007) Professional skills and competences for community-based action in housing market renewal. In: 7th International Postgraduate Research Conference in the Built and Human Environment, 27th-28th March 2007, University of Salford, UK.



Housing Market Renewal Fund is one of the radical actions in the Sustainable Community Plan forming the key basis for tackling low housing demand and abandonment in the most acute areas across North and Midlands, England. The implications for skills and competences need to be investigated as a review of the related literatures mainly emphasises the important to practitioners of integrating professional and community-based skills in dealing with local community. These skill gaps arise as the present professional practices are more focused on the individual core occupational skills within an organisation. A main research question within a facilities management perspective will be addressed. A pilot study will be undertaken at the ELEVATE East Lancashire Pathfinder. Research objectives and strategy will be derived from both literature and pilot study findings. The research outcomes would suggest an appropriate community-based skills and competences for future enhancement programmes within pathfinder organisations.
