The DIN Community

Where innovators and disruptors come together

Welcome to the Disruptive Innovators Network

We are the membership community for social housing organisations investing in innovation. We are about purpose, collaboration, sharing and learning together. We have a passion for thinking creatively and doing things differently. By capturing the best insights and knowledge from different sectors and embracing new innovations we inspire social housing leaders wanting to transform their organisations. With a hands-on approach, we explore better ways of working, test new and emerging technologies as well as different business models to help our members understand how to more effectively deal with disruption and become better innovators.
