How housing associations can call for homes to be at the heart of the recovery

There are lots of ways you can support the campaign, from engaging with your local politicians and media to creating a splash on social media.

Build local political support

With your support we’ve built relationships with MPs across all parties, gaining significant political backing. We now want to build on this support to press home our call for a once-in-a-generation investment in social housing.

Ahead of the upcoming Spending Review we want to maintian momentum and continue to engage with politicians. Consider hosting a virtual or socially distanced visit of your schemes with politicians, so they can see first-hand the work and impact of housing associations locally. 

  1. Invite politicians to a virtual or socially distanced visit of your schemes 
  2. Encourage politicians to publicly support the campaign through a short video or photo
  3. Ask politicians to share our campaign graphics on social media
