Rural Housing Week 2022

Welcome to Rural Housing Week 2022!

An annual campaign to showcase the fantastic work housing associations and local community led housing groups do in rural communities, Rural Housing Week 2022 is our opportunity to highlight the many ways in which housing associations are working to support the levelling-up agenda in rural areas.

The challenges facing housing in rural communities remain significant with rural economies lagging on key metrics such as pay, productivity and infrastructure.

Therefore it’s more important than ever that we highlight the great work rural housing associations are doing currently.


Below are the resources we will be sharing during this campaign week.
Have a browse through our website for more information.


The informative podcast we are sharing this week is from Chris France. He chats through the opportunities for community led housing within the National Parks and the North York Moors.

To listen to some more podcasts by people with lived experience of community led housing, take a look here.


As a hub we regularly run workshops on the different aspects of community led housing.
Our current series ‘Communities Building Homes’ takes you from the basics of ‘what is community led housing’, right through to the ‘Live’ stage of the process.

The next available in this series is Living in and managing your homes, 12 July.
