Housing Day is a national 24 hour social media event which gives the housing sector a chance to showcase its impact. Encouraging tenants and staff to spark conversations about the value of social housing, the live tweetathon will take place on Monday 18th September 2017.
The annual event celebrates the positive impact of social housing on thousands of people across the UK, hearing life-changing stories of tenants, staff and landlords. After all, social housing accounts for one in six of all UK homes.
Dispelling misconceptions and stereotypes, Housing Day focuses on the unique benefits and diverse services offered by social housing. Housing staff work hard to provide safe, affordable housing to families and people on low incomes. But it doesn’t stop there; those living in social housing have access to an abundance of helpful services, from support finding education and work, to community schemes for young people.
We’re encouraging our tenants and staff to share their stories with enthusiasm and pride to illustrate the powerful role of social housing in communities up and down the country. You can get involved in the UK’s biggest housing chat by sharing your unique positive experiences in 140 characters on Twitter using the hashtag ‘#HousingDay’.
