Branch Secretary :

New Date for the Alternative Housing Awards 2018!

Housing association bosses love nothing more than adding to their shelf of nice shiny accolades. But instead of bosses’ self-congratulations, we want residents and workers to have a say.


Through The Alternative Housing Awards we will name and shame associations for their bad behaviour. In a sector dripping with wealth, there is no excuse for poverty pay, inadequate repairs, and service charge hikes, but these features prevail.


Choose your nominations here. Visit the SHAC website here.


Our 'Tarnished Trophies' will be presented as housing bosses and executives leave their glitzy and prestigious inside Housing Social Housing Conference:


  • Wednesday 5th December 2018
  • 4.30pm - 7pm
  • etc venues
  • 155 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3YD Map
  • Closest station and tube: Liverpool Street


There are six landlord and four employer categories, highlighting those with a poor track record on rent rises, maintenance and repairs, service charges, poverty pay, and punitive performance management.





Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
