CIH produces numerous publications to support housing professionals in their daily work and in their career development.  We often illustrate these with examples of innovative and positive practice from housing organisations.  If your organisation has a successful new initiative, particularly one which ties in to one of our current projects as detailed below, we'd like to hear from you.
