The Strategic Housing Forum (SHF) meets quarterly, is chaired by Tom Bell, Rotherham Council's Director of Housing, Asset Management and Neighbourhood Services, and its members include representatives from housing associations, health services, the Police, voluntary and community organisations and various Council services involved in housing.

The aims of the SHF are:

  • To ensure partners and stakeholders are properly engaged in the development of RMBC housing strategies and policies
  • To identify opportunities to work together effectively on cross-cutting issues
  • To work collectively to ensure that Rotherham is delivering on national and regional housing agendas
  • To share best practice and innovation
  • To report where appropriate to the Health and Wellbeing Board and Business and Growth Boards in the Rotherham Together Partnership structure
