A new generation of social homes will help us live, rest and flourish.
We all need somewhere to call home – a place to rest, to share with our loved ones, to make a life or watch your kids grow up. But right now many of us can’t afford a decent home.
We call on the government to put our interests before those of corporate landlords and developers, and start building the high-quality, genuinely affordable social homes we need.Join the campaign
We urge the government to:
1. Grant councils more funds to build genuinely affordable homes
2. Make social housing the preferred way of delivering affordable homes
3. End ‘right to buy’ to preserve council house stocks
4. Give councils power to compulsorily purchase poor-quality private rental homes
