More than 2,000 take part in 'Rethinking social housing' workshops

More than 2,000 people have had their say on the future of social housing by taking part in workshops as part of a major CIH project.

Nearly 200 groups - including tenants, housing professionals and other people interested in housing - have taken part in the workshops over the last two months as part of CIH's Rethinking social housing project.

A full range of housing organisations took part across a wide geographical spread; including housing associations, local authorities and co-operatives. Around half of the respondents were tenants.

An online toolkit was made available in January, so that anyone with an interest in social housing could take part in a workshop and explore fundamental questions before reporting the results back to CIH.

Over the same period, around 760 people completed an online survey asking the same questions - which was designed for those who couldn't take part in a workshop.

The next stage of the project will involve a significant public perceptions survey before the final results of the project, along with a report featuring recommendations, is revealed in the summer.
