Last few days: tell us what home means to you for the chance to win big

Home. It’s more than just a place, it’s a feeling right?  

But what is that feeling – for you? 

There are just a few days left to enter our #HomeIs competition by telling us what ‘home’ means to you.  

One lucky winner’ll be announced on 4th July. So if you want to be in with a chance to win some great prizes, make sure you get your entry in quick. 

Here’s what’s up for grabs: 

  • 12 months’ free use of our platform, with full support from the SoCrowd team for your organisation 
  • A social media audit 
  • 12 months’ free access to the Comms Creatives Social Media Academy 

So, what are you waiting for? Tell us how home makes you feel. 


Need a few ideas? 

Maybe home’s what everything else is built on… 


Or the cosy place you hang out with your furry friend: 


Or perhaps home is somewhere you can look forward to the future, with hope and ambition: 


Whatever home means to you, we’re closing entries to our competition at the end of the CIH Housing conference on 30 June.  


#HomeIs not just a bit of fun 

There’s a light-hearted side to all this (who doesn’t love sharing a cute dog pic?). But #HomeIs is about a serious issue, too.  

120,000 young people faced homelessness in 2021, often through no fault of their own.  

We work with lots of organisations in the housing sector. That’s why we and our friends at Comms Creatives have teamed up with the CIH’s presidential campaign, Homeful, to support an alliance of local and regional charities.  

As part of the competition, we’ll be donating £1,000 to the charity if we get 200 entries. AND Homeful will use the entries as part of their vital research in the fight to end youth homelessness. 

So by telling us what ‘home’ means to you, you’ll also be doing your bit in helping to fight homelessness. 


How to enter 

To support Homeful (and be in with a chance to win that fantastic prize), all you need to do is share a pic or video that sums up what #HomeIs to you.  

You can do that on Insta, Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook. And don’t forget to tag us in your post, too! 

Need a bit more inspiration? Check out what Hugo Sugg says his home means to him. Hugo’s the CEO of the Cardon Banfield Foundation, a group working with individuals and families to try to prevent homelessness. He’s experienced homelessness himself, so we think his words are well worth reading.


Listen up 

You can take a look at all the entries so far by searching #HomeIs on the socials.  

And if you’re at the CIH Housing conference on 28-30 June, come and see us at stand G46. We’re giving every competition entrant who visits our stand a FREE set of wireless earbuds, so there’s no excuse not to come along and say hi. 

We’re also hosting a panel at this year’s event. Our CEO James will be discussing how housing associations can embrace social media to create real change, with knowledgeable panelists Tanya Moravec from Hyde Housing, Beth O’Malley from CIH. We hope to see you there!
