Racial Equality Group

The REG is a diverse cross-sector network of housing professionals who are committed to conversation and action about racial inequality within our sector and the communities it serves. While the focus of the Racial Equality Group is on racial equality and social housing overall, there is a particular focus on service delivery and the work housing associations do with communities.
