Thanks to everyone that took part in Rural Housing Week 2020 and helped us to highlight key rural issues, and the fantastic work rural housing associations do to help the residents and communities in our towns and villages.
Using the hashtag #RuralCommunitiesTogether, housing associations across England came together to share some of the great examples of the positive impact they are making in keeping their communities safe and well during the coronavirus crisis.
We also published a number of blogs and case studies during the week that help to showcase this work and reinforce the message that rural housing associations are vital in improving people's lives. We've pulled together some of the highlights of the week below.

Meet Gillian and her mum Joan. Gillian moved back to the village where her mum still lives, right behind her Mum's house. So that she can care for her Mum every day we put a gate in-between their gardens @natfednews #RuralCommunitiesTogether pic.twitter.com/FMJUdvb1fW— Broadland Housing (@BroadlandHsg) July 10, 2020
