The issue of stigma featured high on the agenda of many tenants
in informing the Social Housing Green Paper and although
not specifically mentioned as one of the 7 elements of the Charter
for Social Housing Residents in the Social Housing White Paper, the
White Paper makes reference to the 'See the Person' Campaign to
tackle stigma in social housing.
Following earlier consideration of a new report "Stigma
and Social Housing in England" by Mercy Denedo (Durham
University) and Amanze Ejiogu (University of Leicester) the ARCH
Tenant Group invited the authors of the report to meet with members
of the Tenant Group to discuss the report in more detail and the
authors of the report have agreed to attend a special meeting of
the ARCH Tenant Group to discuss the issue of stigmatisation of
social housing and social housing tenants.
The Special Meeting of the ARCH Tenant Group with the report
authors will take place on 9 December 2021.
