Housing Day social media event set for 7 October #UKhousing

An annual 24-hour social media event designed to celebrate the positive impact of social housing will be held on 7 October #UKhousing

Now in its eighth year, the event will focus on ‘the importance of home’ in support of the national ‘Homes at the Heart’ campaign calling for a once-in-a-generation investment in social housing.

The organisers are seeking stories of the key role a decent, safe and genuinely affordable home plays in people’s lives, not only in times of crisis but always.

Housing Day lead Leslie Channon said: “Never has there been more of a time, in recent history, where the importance of home and community has been so starkly demonstrated within our society.

“Although I have had COVID-19 and I have been ill for many months, I have been very grateful for the home and community I have. When I was too ill to take care of myself, my community stepped in and dropped off meals and went shopping for me. My community has held my family together.

“#HousingDay has always been a celebration of social housing and the important role it can play in supporting people’s lives. We are delighted to be lending our support to ‘Homes at the Heart’.”
