England regional boards

Our nine regional boards represent the housing profession in their local region. They work with other key stakeholders to help our members to learn, improve and influence by participating in regional and national policy consultations, hosting local seminars and events, lobbying local MPs and establishing links with universities and colleges to promote careers in housing.
What do regional boards do?

  • work together to tackle common challenges faced by housing organisations in their region
  • inform our thinking by gathering information on housing policy and best practice from their members
  • promote excellent standards in the delivery of housing services in their region
  • facilitate debate at a local level, by building and sustaining relationships with key decision makers to influence housing policy
  • help us to understand the diverse needs of our customers by acting as the voice of members in their region

Get involved with CIH in your area

Getting involved with your regional board is a great way to learn about regional policy issues, improve your skills by sharing experiences, and influence the housing agenda in your area. You can play a part in supporting and influencing CIH activities at a local level, and meet and share experiences with other like-minded housing professionals. You will also have the opportunity to represent members of your own profession whilst mentoring and nurturing future housing professionals.
