Rural Housing Week 2021 – Committed to Rural Communities

Rural Housing Week is a week-long campaign that takes place every year to showcase the fantastic work that housing associations do in rural communities. This year, Rural Housing Week takes place from 5-9 July.

The theme this year is committed to rural communities – highlighting rural housing associations’ dedication to providing affordable homes that people love and that keep vital rural services alive. Now, more than ever, rural housing associations are committed to their communities and to working together to help them thrive. Rural Housing Week is the perfect time to celebrate that.

Rural Housing Alliance members and the National Housing Federation have lots planned for the week both nationally and around the country. Watch out for the hashtag #RuralHousingWeek on social media.

The newly published Parish Councillors’ Guide to Rural Affordable Housing will be introduced during the week along with the updated Rural Pledge signed up to by all the members of the Rural Housing Alliance.
