Planning for Starts at Home day 2020

We’re already looking forward to Starts at Home Day next year, so much so we’ve set the date already: 29 August 2020.

Starts at Home Day is a day when housing associations up and down the country celebrate supported housing and the positive impact it makes on thousands of lives. This day of action is central to the Starts at Home campaign, which has a simple but important aim – to ensure that people who needs extra support will always have a safe home that meets their needs.

We’d like to thank everyone for their hard work in 2019, engaging with MPs on the vital issue of supported housing and championing these great services.

2. Send us your stories

There is huge value in taking the time to explain just what supported housing is, and showcasing its positive impact on thousands of lives. We urge you to keep this up.

This year, we also want to tell the story of people who work to provide supported housing and why they are proud of what they do.

Send us your stories and we’ll publish them here and share some on social media.

3. Keep in touch

As the day approaches next year, you’ll be able to order your campaign boards which you can use to share photos on social media of residents and staff with the board. We’ll also update you with a new policy briefing and a letter template to invite your local MP to one of your schemes.
