Let's end the stigma some social housing tenants experience

In a recent survey, more than 90% of tenants said the media portrays a negative stereotype of the people living in social housing. We know these unfair and untrue stereotypes have a real impact on individuals and communities. So it’s time to show real people’s true stories.

We need your help. As part of the national #benefit2society campaign, we're on the look-out for Bolton at Home tenants willing to share positive stories that will challenge the way social housing is portrayed.

If you’d like to get involved please email with your contact details and a few words about your story or experience, for us to follow-up with you.

Remember, if you know a person or group who has made a difference in their community please nominate them for our Stars of the community awards. More information here:
