Common misrepresentations of social housing tenants in the local and national media often include inaccurate perceptions, such as tenants being associated with exploiting the benefit system and living in run down estates. These misrepresentations are damaging and drive the public to have a typically negative stereotypical view of social housing tenants.

Benefit to Society have united 17 housing organisations across the country and are commissioning an academic research programme into the problem of stereotyping social housing tenants, to deliver a high impact campaign that will challenge the way the public think and tackle the stigma associated with social housing tenants.
