A date for this year’s #HousingDay has been announced! The event will take place on Wednesday 10th October 2018 where thousands of agents, landlords and housing associations will come together to promote the positive things in social housing. Last year’s event just took place on the Twitter network, this year the event looks set to be bigger and bolder, encouraging agents to not just tweet their support but post on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #HousingDay!
Before the day begins, agents, landlords and housing associations are being asked to ask their tenants for their stories in social housing. These stories are being shared across the official #HousingDay website alongside various other blog posts in relation to social housing! As well as these stories, people who work in the housing sector are being asked to spread the word. This can either be done by gathering everyone in a room to talk about the upcoming Social Housing Green Paper, creating a video with tenants or by simply sharing their support via a tweet or Facebook post. If you’re based in London, you can also join supporters of the day at the HACT office, where a pop-up media lounge will be set up for housing people to talk about social housing and raising the profile of their tenants!
