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 news@boltonathome.org.uk 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: https://goo.gl/w3pmE1
