What is the Big Conversation?
It's a national consultation about social and council housing in England, and we want to hear from you. How? First, take our survey to share your views.
Led by a panel of 16 commissioners (chaired by Grenfell community leader, Reverend Mike Long), the conversation will examine what social housing looks like in modern Britain – and its role in ending the housing crisis. Commissioners include Ed Miliband, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Baroness Doreen Lawrence, and television presenter/architect George Clarke.
How we'll all get there
1. Tell our commission what you think
Take our survey to weigh in on social housing
2. We'll publish a report
Led by your voices, we'll create a blueprint for big change
3. Telling our leaders
We'll take the report to all political leaders by the end of 2018
In the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, many social housing tenants say they feel ignored – and this isn't unique to Grenfell. Across the country, many communities and tenants don't feel their views count – and that often, they're treated as second-class citizens.
But we're ready to listen. To tenants, people on waiting lists, and the wider community. We want as many voices as possible to be heard. And we want a bold plan for change, which we'll deliver directly to Prime Minister Theresa May, and Labour's Jeremy Corbyn.
