Rural Housing Week 2020

It’s Rural Housing Week 2020 now!

This annual celebration of rural housing and the vital role it plays in helping to sustain thriving rural communities and services takes place from 6 to 10 July 2020.

Organised by the National Housing Federation and the Rural Housing Alliance, this is an opportunity to highlight key rural issues and shine a spotlight on successful affordable housing developments and services that offer a lifeline to local people.

Due to the challenges presented by the coronavirus crisis, some of the plans have changed for this year's Rural Housing Week. However, there are lots of online and media activities taking place nationally and around the country to put extra focus on the great work that rural housing associations are doing in so many rural towns and villages. Watch out for the hashtag #RuralCommunitiesTogether on social media.

Members of the Rural Housing Alliance have many, many examples of excellent projects across the length of rural England. A number have been highlighted on the Alliance website relating to:

  • Coastal bungalows
  • Community support in many forms
  • Decarbonisation
  • PassivHaus
  • Homelessness prevention
  • Retrofit
  • Alternative construction methods

You can see all these, alongside the existing bank of Alliance member case studies, via this link.
