Housing Day, a national campaign to raise the profile of social housing and combat myths about social housing, saw organisations using social media to celebrate the work of the sector.

By 8am, #HousingDay was trending on Twitter, and by 4pm, creator of the event Adrian Capon said 12,800 #HousingDay tweets had been sent.

The day received wide support throughout the housing sector and beyond, with 660 tweets sent every hour.

James Langstaff, the Bishop of Rochester, tweeted in favour of #HousingDay, saying: “Social housing vital – nobody can flourish without security of housing.”

Housing minister Brandon Lewis also gave his support, encouraging social media users to “meet the great people” who work in social housing.

The Barnsley Federation of Tenants and Residents sent letters to local MPs ahead of the day, while Salford-based Salix Homes sent tweets throughout the night to highlight the work of its first response control centre.

Twitter users also took part in the #ProudTenant campaign, with people sharing stories about why they are proud to be social tenants.

Camden Council tweeted the words of social housing tenant Irene Hamilton, who said: “This is my wee house and it’s lovely.”

South London resident Zeinab Mohammed, who lives in a Metropolitan property, said: “I really love everything about this place – the people, they are like family in this area. If someone doesn’t see me for a few days, they look out for me to see how I am.”
