SHAC was set up to unite all the people who live or work in social housing or cooperatives. It is a means of empowering us to work jointly on campaigns of common concern, and improving our chances of better lives.

On this site you will find advice on setting up a tenants or residents organisation, making a complaint about your landlord, or launching a campaign, as well as news articles on our activities. There are templates and checklists for shortcuts to aid busy campaigners.

SHAC also runs its own housing association ratings website. You can score your landlord in 7 different categories using a starring system, and leave feedback using SHAC-RATER. The results are updated regularly and appear here.
