NUE celebrating National Empty Homes Week

National Empty Homes Week 2017

National Empty Homes Week will take place from Monday 16th October to 22nd October.

Every year local authorities, housing providers, community-led organisations and others see Empty Homes Week as an opportunity to organise events and put out information so that people know about their work to tackle empty homes.  Empty Homes Week is also the chance to celebrate successes and reflect on what more needs to be done to bring empty properties back into use to help meet housing needs.

If you are interested in sponsoring the week’s activities please contact the national campaigning charity on for more information.

NUE will be updating our website with new case studies featuring our most recent projects.


Since its inception in 2005, NUE has grown to incorporate all 12 district councils and four West of England Councils including Bristol City Council as well as providing a template for the Welsh Government’s empty homes schemes “Houses Into Homes”.

We have recently achieved our ambition of returning more than 5,000 empty properties back into use across Kent.

NUE Looking Ahead

We will shortly be announcing news on additional financial support available following the success of our Top Up Loan scheme with Shepway District Council.

Demand for our loan products remain high with a growing list of potential projects.

We continue to work with our partners and seek out opportunities to bring long term empty properties back into use as residential accommodation.
