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.

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.
