We have a huge crisis in many of our housing markets, but we want a housing system that works for everyone.

CIH’s foundation as a social purpose organisation provides opportunities for us to challenge thinking and decisions, in a constructive and evidence-based manner.

What we do

  • Publish research and briefings on important housing issues, including the annual statistical publication UK Housing Review
  • Work closely with senior policy makers in all parts of the UK to shape the housing agenda
  • Strive to improve the media’s coverage of housing issues and inform the public
  • Draw on the expertise and opinions of our members to shape our views, arguments and priorities.

Get in touch

If you've got a question for the policy team, you can send us an email to policy@cih.org and a member of the team will get back to you shortly.
