Housing Day 2018 confirmed for 10 October

Housing Day, the 24-hour social media event celebrating the positive impact of social housing on millions of tenants, will take place this year on Wednesday 10 October.

13 September 2018

Now in its sixth year, #HousingDay has played an important role in raising the profile of the social housing sector, helping to tackle stigma and stereotypes.

Previously known as primarily a Twitter event, this year #HousingDay will be taking its message to other social media channels including Facebook.

This year's event is particularly important as it falls in the middle of the consultation period for the Government's Social Housing Green Paper, and appropriately, the theme this year is 'the tenant voice'.

At a time when social housing is back on the political agenda and there is a desire to give tenants more of say on how services are run, #HousingDay provides a real opportunity for both landlords and residents to get their message across.
