CIH joins forces with Housing Today

We are pleased to announce that from today (Wednesday 4 October), we will be entering into a new partnership with media brand Housing Today to provide additional news, insight, comment and analysis to our paying members.  

We know our members value access to independent journalism and we are so pleased to bolster our member offer with this incredible addition. Members will also have access to the Housing Today Boardroom platform, a data product providing quarterly insight and sentiment from housing development directors. In addition, members will receive a 20 per cent discount on Building Magazine subscriptions. 

Housing Today is the fastest growing media brand in the sector and is part of a stable of built environment media brands that includes Building Magazine and Building Design and is produced by the independent and award-winning media company Assemble Media Group.  

The title is renowned for its campaigning journalism including its most recent “Fair Deal for Housing” campaign which achieved widespread support from housing associations, housebuilders and developers upon calling for the government to recommit to its target of fulfilling 300,000 new homes each year. Housing Today also has an established team of housing experts on its editorial team as well as an influential roster of columnists.  

Josie Twinning, director of membership and partnerships at Chartered Institute of Housing, commented: 

“We are excited to be embarking on a new strategic partnership with Housing Today to provide additional news, insight, comment and analysis to our members. 

“As the professional body for people who work in housing, we are constantly evolving to ensure our members have access to the best resources, news, information and professional development tools to support housing professionals. Housing Today will be a great addition to our portfolio of member benefits and we look forward to rolling out access to our members over the coming weeks.” 

Chloe McCulloch, editorial director said that Assemble Media Group said:  

“To be able to provide our independent campaigning journalism, expert content, data and analysis to the inboxes of all CIH members is a privilege. We look forward to working with Gavin Smart, CIH chief executive and his team to continually improve the offering and by coming up with additional ideas, products and services to enrich the member offering.” 

If you’re a CIH member, we are currently working on the logistics of giving every member access to Housing Today. We’ll keep you informed of the developments and drop you an email when everything is ready for you to login and access this incredible news platform.
