House Proud - Devolved logo

House Proud – Devolved is the latest stage of our House Proud campaign. This began last year with the aim of pushing housing up the political agenda in the run up to the general election. This time round we are focusing on the importance of good housing in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as they prepare to go to the polls.

You can get involved by signing our petition in support of the campaign, using the key facts we will provide to argue the case for housing, and sending us your case studies demonstrating the contribution housing organisations make to society.

The original campaign

House Proud was a joint initiative from Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing, run ahead of the 2010 General Election. Its aim was to shout about housing’s crucial contribution to every aspect of social policy, and demonstrate the importance of good housing to key politicians from all the major parties. The campaign had three specific aims:

  • First we wanted 250 backers to sign a petition to be delivered to the new government.
  • Second, we wanted each of the three main political parties to include a housing pledge in their election manifestos.
  • Finally, we wanted to get the sector fighting housing’s corner as the election approached. To make housing a key election issue at every opportunity, and encourage staff, residents, friends and family to do the same.

The campaign achieved all three of its aims, and although it ended before the election we will continue to promote the importance of good housing through this website and Inside Housing magazine.
