Amy Nettleton (Chair of The National Housing Group), Asif Choudry (Chartered Marketer at We Are Resource) and housing specialists, Aster Group have joined together to launch an innovative exclusive hour of chat. Shared Ownership Chat Hour was launched on Twitter just a few months back with the aim of giving shared ownership homes a voice. As well as this, the chat was designed to be a place where the sector could come together, chat on social media and have a brew from the comfort of their own home. The chat itself takes place every Wednesday at 8pm covering various topics including mortgages, affordable home ownership, legislation, marketing and digital services.

Since then, Amy, Asif and Aster Group have been overwhelmed with the reaction they’ve received from the chat. Thousands of property professionals have took part in the chat whilst being made aware of shared ownership. Each week the chat is hosted by a different housing professional discussing a different topic, this Wednesday 11th April the chat is set to be hosted by Nick Atkin, Group CEO of Halton Housing with a “CEO’s view” of shared ownership. Previous hosts include Tim Willcocks, Director of Developement at RHP, Sarah Davis, Senior Policy and Practice Officer at CIH Housing, Glynis Hobson and Co-Ownership Housing.
