Renters need a stable home too!
A stable home gives you security and the chance to plan for the future. Yet, if you’re renting - living on six to 12-month contracts - life can be uncertain and unpredictable.
One in four families now rent privately. Many children are living in homes at the mercy of short-term contracts, where their family are scraping money together to make ends meet. This is no way to grow up.
Every child should have a stable home where their family doesn’t face the constant threat of having to move, or cutting back on essentials to pay the rent.
That’s why we’re calling on the housing minister, Alok Sharma to introduce contracts of a minimum of five years for people who rent. If necessary, they could leave such contracts early, but at least they’d have the option of staying in their home for a secure time period.
Add your name and ask the Government to give people who rent a fairer deal by introducing longer rental contracts.
