#HousingDay – an annual celebration of the important role housing associations play in society – is an opportunity for you to highlight the excellent work you do, and the many and various ways you’re making things better for everybody.
Leslie Channon is the organiser of #HousingDay
7 October 2019
Tuesday 8 October is #HousingDay 2019 and the theme this year is ‘community investment.’
#HousingDay has always been a celebration of social housing and the important role it plays in improving people's lives. Community investment is one of things housing associations do that has a huge impact but isn’t always recognised. We know there is so much great work happening out there but we don't hear about it enough. #HousingDay is your chance to tell the world what you have been doing.
