Social Housing Action Campaign

SHAC grew from the Axe the Housing Act Summit held on the 26th November 2016. The summit brought together campaigners across a vast range of housing tenures, including council, private and housing association landlords, cooperatives, boat dwellers, and homeless people. It was a force through which the growing housing crisis was highlighted.

The Unite Housing Workers Branch hosted a workshop on housing associations at which it was clear that there was a strong appetite to create some form of network so that residents and tenants could learn from each other and build solidarity. By June 2018, the Network had grown sufficiently to launch as SHAC (the Social Housing Action Campaign).

See the SHAC website for more details.
