Rural Housing Week 2017 is approaching

This year Rural Housing Week will take place between 3 and 7 July.

The week will consist of local activities organised in rural communities throughout the country by rural organisations, supported by the National Housing Federation and finish with a national conference in London.

The Federation will be producing an information pack with examples of popular activities you can organise during the week and advice for engaging with the local media. Keep an eye on their website for more information.

The Federation are also setting a challenge to get as many MPs as possible to visit rural housing schemes during the week and the pack will have tips to help you do this.

To achieve as much coverage as possible please join in on social media using the hashtag #ruralhousing

Peter French of the Federation said: "To help us promote Rural Housing Week we would be grateful if you could share case studies of examples where the addition of affordable homes has had a tangible positive impact on the local rural community e.g. it helped keep a post office or school open."

If you have any questions please email Morgane Legendre from the Federation's PR team or call on 020 7067 1098.
