Homes people can afford

Everyone needs a secure, stable and affordable place to live. But right now there are more than 170,000 families in rural communities who are on social housing waiting lists, and many more in urban areas.

It’s time to do something about this. We’ve joined housing charities such as Shelter, Crisis and the National Housing Federation to call on the government to spend £12.8 billion a year to build more social housing across England for those that need it most.

We want to see communities in the countryside prosper and flourish, and they need affordable homes to do so. Read more about our calls for action.
