This is the fifth year of celebrating housing in Scotland with Scottish Housing Day. This year we’re talking about the value of social housing. We all know a safe, secure, warm, good quality, affordable home is vital to wellbeing. The current COVID pandemic has more than ever made it clear how important social housing is so we want you to take part in the day and share your thoughts and experiences around the value of social housing.
You can do this in a number of ways. First, become a supporter. Every year support for Scottish Housing Day gets bigger and bigger with more support, more profile and more impact. Do get involved and sign up We want all landlords, third sector organisations, tenants organisations, developers, builders – in fact anyone involved in housing in Scotland – to let everyone know that they support Scottish Housing Day. Let’s celebrate social housing together.
