Time running out to win a dream trip to Africa

There’s less than a month to apply for the Inside Housing, in partnership with Homeless International and the London Housing Foundation, Into Africa competition.

The winners will travel to Africa for seven days, visiting some of the housing projects that Homeless International supports.

They will learn about developing homes in some of the poorest communities in the world and be able to use their experiences to influence their work in the UK.

To enter you need to explain the following in 500 words or less:

  • how you think winning this trip will add to your understanding of social housing and enrich your work in UK housing
  • what your experience in the UK housing sector can bring to the work of Homeless International in Africa

Get more information here and the entries are made via this Homeless International link. The deadline is 14 February 2014.
