Driving best practice & innovation of repairs & maintenance services through knowledge sharing, both within & from outside the housing sector
Welcome to the NHMF Contractor Forum.
The Forum was established in 2012 as the trade affiliation for contractors working in the field of social housing.
Our goal is to create closer working relationships between contractors, clients and sub-contractors and we work closely with the NHMF to promote best practice in the procurement and management of repairs.
Membership is open to any contractor providing maintenance services to managed housing. Each company membership includes two named representatives who are eligible to attend meetings and events.

The Forum meets together rather than dividing into groups by size or region. This promotes better informed discussion, taking into account different perspectives. The meetings are held four times a year and usually take place in the mornings to make the best use of everyone’s time. Sessions include a talk from an external speaker to shape the discussion around key themes which have been suggested by our members.
Our members include a wide range of contractors, from household names to SMEs and specialist sub-contractors.
For many years the NHMF has had at least one contractor represented on its committee to ensure that it understands fully the contractors' perspective when developing the M3NHF Schedule of Rates and related products. Contractors have also been involved in various training sessions and conferences in order to promote best practice.
The NHMF is keen to involve them at an earlier stage in the consultation process when developing the schedules and diagnostic systems that are now used by nearly all social housing providers.
