When will your area become unaffordable?

At the moment, if you lost your home, the housing safety net would protect you. You would receive temporary rent support to help you stay near family, friends and work.

The Government is trying to pass laws that will reduce this rent support. This could mean you might be forced to move to a different part of town, or a completely different area altogether.

Use these maps to see how long it will be before 9 out of 10 homes in your area are unaffordable.

Sometimes we need a bit of help to get back on our feet. Please join Shelter’s campaign to make sure that rent support reflects housing costs in your local area.
