#HousingDay18 is 10th October 2018. It is a 24-hour social media event to celebrate the positive impact of social housing on millions of tenants. This year the theme of Housing Day is about the Tenant Voice. It would be good for co-op members to participate in Housing Day and to get the message across about co-operative housing. A press release for Housing Day is here.
How you can get involved
In keeping with this year’s theme, we want as many tenants as possible to get involved with #HousingDay18 on Wednesday, 10th October and make their voices heard.
You can do this in many different ways:
- If you’re a tenant, write a blog telling us your housing story. We will do our best to publish everything we receive on our #HousingDay 2018 blog. We’ll also share them with the housing press!
- If you work for a social landlord, please spread the word on your social media channels and encourage your tenants to get involved. Organise an event on #HousingDay itself and get everyone together in a room. This could also be a great day to bring tenants together to discuss the Social Housing Green Paper. Remember, it’s their voices that count.
- Involve your tenants and create a #HousingDay video – share it with the world.
- If you’re in London on #HousingDay why not join us at the HACT offices where we’ll be setting up a pop-up media lounge where loads of housing people will be gathering to celebrate the big day and talk about how we can tackle stigma and raise the profile of tenants.
And remember, always use the #HousingDay18 hashtag!
