"We are an elected voluntary board, representing CIH - London, raising awareness of the capital's housing issues and policies by providing events and networking opportunities to our members."

A message from the Chair of the London Regional Board:

Welcome to all our London members!

London can be a big and impersonal place, but we on the CIH London Regional Board try to shrink it for you by offering some brilliant opportunities to meet other members at our events and networking sessions. We have surveyed London members twice and know that the thing you value most from us is to have free opportunities in our expensive capital city, so all the events organised by us are FREE to CIH members.

We keep our costs low by only communicating with you by email, so make sure your contact details are up to date on the members' area of this website. If you have any queries or want to come to meet the volunteers who make up the London Board, contact Jill Allcoat.

See you soon

Jan Taranczuk
