Four Million Homes programme – empowering residents

We’re pleased to support the Four Million Homes programme, which provides free knowledge, guidance and training on resident rights and how to stand up for them.

It is funded by the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and run by the Confederation of Co-operative Housing (CCH) and Public Participation, Consultation and Research (PPCR).

Four Million Homes is now in its second year and will run until March 2025. The Four Million Homes website contains lots of advice and guidance for residents, as well as the booking portal for all upcoming activities. Residents can sign up through the website for the Four Million Homes newsletter to hear directly about the programme.

The training programme, which takes place in-person and online, consists of 8 modules, covering different stages and forms of resident involvement.

1. Explore your rights to engage and be heard

2. Equality, diversity and inclusion

3. Resident panels

4. Running effective residents’ associations

5. Social housing legal requirements

6. Options for resident control

7. Understanding landlord financial models

8. Social housing regulatory requirements

All participants who complete the training receive a certificate of accreditation recognised by the Chartered Institute of Housing.

There is also a monthly webinar session based on the key topics and issues that residents want to see. After the event, the webinars are made available as videos and published on the website.
