Positive Footprints set to inspire at CIH Housing 2021 international event

Positive Footprints will be showcasing the amazing impact housing associations make inspiring children in their communities at Housing 2021 from 79 September.

Stand E71 at Manchester Central will be our home for three fun-filled days at Europe’s leading housing festival. The annual conference will see thousands of attendees from the industry come together to discuss, debate and learn more about ways to improve the housing sector. 

It is a chance for us to collaborate with more organisations and demonstrate the ways forward-thinking housing associations are investing in the future of children in their area through our Raising Aspirations programme.

Lesley Burrows, our Managing Director, said: “This is a great opportunity to meet innovative organisations who share our vision to create thriving communities. Housing associations are raising aspirations and inspiring the next generation to become leaders, change-makers and problem-solvers. I urge everyone attending to find out more at stand E71.” 




Children who live in low-income homes are a third more likely to be NEET at age 16, and housing associations spend over £60 million per year on employment and skills support for residents. That’s why innovative housing associations get our award-winning programmes into schools in their communities as they see the big picture. Our partners include Halton Housing, Cobalt Housing, Calico, Yorkshire Housing, Newground Together, Sovini, Regenda Homes, Homes in Sedgemoor, Gentoo, Leeds & Yorkshire Housing Association, Eldonian, Harrogate Housing Association, Weaver Vale Housing Trust and WDH.

Positive Footprints is part of The Regenda Group and Group Chief Executive, Michael Birkett, said: “I’m delighted to see our Group represented at such an important event by Positive Footprints. The role housing associations play in supporting young people in our communities is vital and Positive Footprints help facilitate that brilliantly.”

Join us on stand E71 at Manchester Central between 7–9
 September 2021.
