For the 2019 general election, we campaigned for the next government to fix the housing crisis for good.
Now that we have a new government, it’s time to raise the profile of housing and housing associations, and make sure ministers and newly elected MPs understand our work.
We’re focusing on the theme of #AHomeForEveryone. We want this positive and inclusive message to reflect housing associations’ social mission, the breadth of what we do, and the power of what we can achieve by working with the government.
So get in touch with your MPs, offer to meet them – and start spreading the word.
Explore our resources below, which cover advice and templates for meeting your local politicians, and briefings on the five big house priorities they need to know about.
