ARCH is a supporter of the Benefit to Society campaign which
aims to end social housing stereotypes and ARCH Tenant Group
representatives Jenny Hill (Runneymede DC), Marlene Price BEM
(Wandsworth Council) and Martyn Lund (Kettering DC) will be
attending the launch of the Benefit to Society Campaign at the
House of Commons on 28 February.
The Benefit to Society campaign brings together nearly 30
housing organisations across the country and has commissioned an
academic research programme into the problem of stereotyping social
housing tenants to help deliver a high impact campaign that will
challenge the way the public think and will help tackle the stigma
associated with social housing.
The Campaign is led by a steering group of tenants and staff
from the sponsor organisations including representatives from the
ARCH Tenant Group.
The launch of the Benefit to Society campaign will be hosted by
Ed Vaizey MP in the House of Commons on 28 February 2018 and will
- new research by the LSE looking at why stigma around social
housing has grown, and
- a social media campaign designed to share a different narrative
about the people living in social housing.
