Eurhonet’s work centres around the needs of our tenants and the professional development of our employees. Eurhonet currently has members from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. We all have the same ambition: to improve our professional performance by sharing best practices, developing our skills, and creating a common view of excellence in the public and social housing sector.

Our key activities

Providing excellent services for our tenants, communities, and society

We help our member organisations to improve their professional performance, processes, and working methods. This includes:

Prioritising the wellbeing and professional development of employees

We support our members to invest in their staff, attract talented employees to the sector, and enhance existing staff training and development opportunities.

Collaboration with Housing Europe

We feed the experiences of our members gathered via our working groups and national and regional dialogue into the policy formulation process of Housing Europe, our sector’s representative body at EU and International level.

Why a European perspective?

We believe it is crucial to look beyond national borders when striving for excellence in our sector.

The European perspective allows us to benchmark our practices against a much broader set of standards. By examining different frameworks, we can scrutinise our own practices, identify areas for improvement, and showcase outstanding initiatives.

Often, all we need is to step back and change perspective. By understanding the challenges and successes of our counterparts in other countries, we can achieve a more nuanced approach to problem-solving. Learning from a wide variety of experiences help us to better respond to, respect, and reflect the diverse needs of our communities.

Climate change, affordability, social exclusion, demographic change… The challenges we face don’t stop at borders. Sharing best practice, resources and expertise can help us to build joint initiatives and avoid working in isolation.

Excellent knowledge should be shared. Working together, we can do more for our tenants and neighbourhoods.
