Creating advocates for an under-appreciated sector
The G15 group of housing associations represents some of the largest developers and providers of affordable housing in London and the south east, including L&Q, Peabody and Clarion. Together, its members own or manage more than 770,000 homes and build around 15% of all new affordable homes across England.
Camargue’s wide-ranging brief with the G15 focused on improving the reputation of housing associations, raising public awareness of the good work they do, and placing pressure on government to increase funding and support for the sector.
Alongside our design studio JFD we developed and launched the G15’s new public-facing brand and website, and led the production of two campaign films that explained the importance of affordable housing in simple terms.
The first film has been seen more than 210,000 times across social media. The second film was used to support the call for affordable housing to be seen as a crucial part of the UK’s infrastructure.
This resulted in extensive coverage carrying our clear campaign messaging across national newspapers ranging from The Guardian and Financial Times, to The Mirror and The Sun, as well as widespread coverage in trade titles. Our team also secured broadcast results for the group around key political moments for the sector including with the BBC and Sky News.
Chair of the G15 (2017-19)
Chief executive of Optivo
Camargue delivered results for the G15 from day one, bringing fresh thinking and creativity to their brief and pushing us to be bolder and more positive in our communications.
"They also created genuinely original content, including a film that used the perspective, incisiveness and enthusiasm of our residents to challenge preconceptions about our sector and communities. They would be a valued partner to any organisation that is looking for an agency to think outside the box and make a real impact."
