Chartered Institute of Housing ( CIH )


Chartered Institute of Housing's picture

Our purpose is simple - we want to transform lives by giving everyone working in housing the advice, tools and knowledge they need to be brilliant, and we want everyone to have a decent, affordable home in a thriving, safe community.

As the professional body for housing it is our job to help housing professionals - we only exist to help you and your organisation be fantastic. CIH was formed in 1916 and for nearly 100 years our purpose and the passion that drives it has remained constant and true.

CIH is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation. This means that the money we make is put back into the organisation and funds the activities we carry out to support housing work - last year we reinvested £11 million into the sector.

We are a membership organisation with a diverse and growing membership of over 22,000 people who work in both the public and private sectors, in 20 countries on five continents across the world.
