Rural Housing Week

Rural Housing Week is an annual campaign to showcase the fantastic work that housing associations do in rural communities. This year, Rural Housing Week takes place from 5-9 July.

The theme this year is committed to rural communities – highlighting rural housing associations' dedication to providing affordable homes that people love and that keep vital rural services alive. Now, more than ever, rural housing associations are committed to their communities and to working together to help them thrive. Rural Housing Week is the perfect time to celebrate that.

How you can get involved

  • Help us create a buzz on Twitter using #RuralHousingWeek.
  • Publish case studies, blogs and photographs on your website that show your commitment to rural communities and the new revised rural pledge.
  • Raise the profile of rural housing by creating and sharing your own supporter graphic (below).


On Wednesday 7 July, we hosted a webinar during which the Rural Housing Alliance shared their revised rural pledge, which underlines their commitment to working in partnership with local communities. They also introduced the newly published Parish Councillors’ Guide to Rural Affordable Housing, and shared examples of how they are working with parish councils and other partners to put that commitment into practice.
