About us

What is CIH?

Our goal is simple – we want to transform lives. We want everyone to have a decent, affordable home in a thriving, safe community.

We passionately believe that our contribution as housing professionals is vital to making communities great places to live.

Therefore, our purpose is to provide everyone involved in housing with the advice, support and knowledge they need to be brilliant.

Our work is rooted in three main objectives – learn, improve and influence. We provide opportunities for learning and improving and we champion housing to influence the direction of policy.

CIH was granted a Royal Charter in 1984. We are a registered charity and the professional body for the housing sector.
