For the first time we will be livestreaming and hosting a video chat session on Twitter, with sector stalwarts Alison Inman and David Orr in the hotseat.

We will also publish blogs on the topic of community investment, the theme of this year’s Housing Day.

Leslie Channon, organiser of this year’s event, said: “Community investment is one of things that we do that can sometimes go unnoticed but in fact can have a hugely beneficial impact.

“This year, the #HousingDay team is hoping to highlight this important area of work and remind people that it shouldn’t be a ‘nice thing to do’ add-on but an integral part of the business.”

Housing Day is an annual event on social media to promote the positive impact of housing. Housing professionals are encouraged to share their stories.

The hashtag for the day is #HousingDay while you can use #IHchat to follow or take part in our Twitter chat sessions.
