Bournville Village Trust is supporting a social media campaign which aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the difference good quality, social housing can make to people’s lives.
#HousingDay, which takes place tomorrow (12 November), aims to mark the positive impact that housing associations, like the Trust, make to the lives of thousands of people across the country.
The campaign, which was created by Ade Capon from Yorkshire Housing, is also supported by the National Housing Federation which is calling for politicians to end the housing crisis in a generation.
As part of the campaign, residents from one of BVT’s sheltered housing schemes and young tenants have been photographed holding up cards which explain how their home makes them feel.
You can see all the photos on the BVT Twitter feed – www.twitter.com/BVTNews – from tomorrow.
Peter Roach, Chief Executive of Bournville Village Trust, said: “We are proud to support #HousingDay and in turn highlight the difference that social housing can make to the lives of people across the country. We’d like to thank all the residents who have supported the campaign by sharing how their home makes them feel.”
Bournville Village Trust has a wide range of rented, freehold, leasehold and shared ownership homes across Birmingham and Shropshire.
