The Labour Housing Group is a socialist society affiliated to the Labour Party. It was formed in 1981 by housing activists within the Party and has had a strong influence on the development of the Labour Party's housing policies, first in opposition, then in Government.  It now faces the challenge of helping Labour to expose the failure of the Coalition govenment on housing in the run up to the 2015 General Election and in supporting a Labour government implement and review it's housing policy.

Membership includes many Labour members of Parliament, councillors, housing professionals and academics, tenants, trades unions and constituency organisations across the country.

Labour Housing Group has helped to develop and promote relationships between Socialist Societies, to link the development of housing policy with planning, transport, education, economic, regeneration, environmental, health and energy policy development.
