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’s annual survey of housing association tenants and residents ran for the month of November. The Survey results are now available and offer a damning indictment of the sector’s leaders. We are enormously grateful to everyone who took the time to complete our questionnaire.
