About Our Branch

We organise across the housing sector, mainly in housing associations, private housing organisations, and umbrella bodies. We are an active and diverse community with around 3,000 members. We have supported members in many workplaces to improve pay, terms and conditions, and to fight against the race to the bottom in social care and housing. We take a campaigning approach to our activities, and have run a number of successful and high profile campaigns to fight injustice in the workplace.
