Who we are
We are for everyone involved in housing
As the professional body for housing it is our job to help housing professionals - we only exist to help you and your organisation be fantastic. CIH was formed in 1916 and for nearly 100 years our purpose and the passion that drives it has remained constant and true.
CIH is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation. This means that the money we make is put back into the organisation and funds the activities we carry out to support housing work - last year we reinvested £11 million into the sector.
We are a membership organisation with a diverse and growing membership of people who work in both the public and private sectors, in 20 countries on five continents across the world.
