Tackling Stigma in Social Housing

CIH launched a guide on tackling stigma in 2020; It's not okay: a guide to tackling stigma in social housing. However, it's still an important issue for social housing organisations and professionals to tackle. This webinar will focus on this complex issue and the actions landlords are taking with tenants to help identify it, raise awareness, and stop it.

You'll hear from the leading academics, Dr Amanze Ejiogu and Dr Mercy Denedo and their report; stigma and social housing in England. Their report revealed how much the stigma against social housing and its tenants are interlinked with other issues, like poverty and race, and the need for a range of approaches to tackle it. You'll hear an update on the consultation results and take stock of what action is being taken by social landlords and professionals and the early impacts.


Anneka Gill, head of transformation, will be talking to us about how Morgan Sindall has developed training and the practical ways they are helping contractors understand the issue and the impact they have when they work in the homes of social housing tenants.
