Rural housing

We’re supporting housing associations to invest in rural homes and communities, and working with them to increase the number of affordable homes in rural areas.

Around 300 of our members own and manage more than 1.7 million homes in village and market towns across the country. 

There is an urgent need to protect and build more affordable housing in rural areas. Many rural communities are in danger of breaking apart, as young families and those on modest incomes are priced out, and local services are closed.

Get involved

We’re working in partnership with housing associations and rural stakeholders to deliver the ambitions of the 5-star plan. We are looking for steering group members and champions to help to promote the plan and push for full sector sign-up.

Please email 5starplan@housing.org.uk to pledge your support and to get more involved.
