Who we are
The home of housing for more than 100 years
For more than 100 years CIH has been the home of professional standards for housing.
We passionately believe in our mission to support housing professionals to create a future in which everyone has a place to call home; equipping them with the skills, knowledge and expertise they need to make a crucial difference every day.
All of our work, whether it’s giving a voice to housing professionals and lobbying the government to change housing policy, training housing professionals through our Housing Academy or bringing them together at our events up and down the country, is dedicated to that mission.
We are a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation which means that the money we make is put back into our work to support housing professionals.
Our 16,000 members span the globe, from our bases in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to our branches in Canada and Hong Kong. Working with us gives you the chance to benefit from unparalleled expertise and knowledge and to be part of a collective effort stretching back well over a century.
We don’t do the work that we do because we should; we do it because we can and because we believe in the power of housing professionals to change lives.
If that’s a mission you can subscribe to we’d love you to work with you.
