Let's build social housing

Join us and together we can build a better future.

Why we need more social housing

During the pandemic our homes have become a focal point in our lives like never before – for work, for education, for our health. But because of the housing emergency too many have been stuck in insecure, poor quality homes. Homes that are often unaffordable to local people working in their communities.

Join us and call on the government to invest in a solution to end the housing emergency by building social homes. Access to a safe, secure, affordable home is a vital foundation in life and one that people are urgently waiting for.

Help us build a better future

This autumn, the Prime Minister has the chance to build back better by investing in a new generation of social homes.

Social housebuilding could kickstart the economy, create jobs, help rebuild communities and the country as we recover from this crisis, whilst delivering the secure homes people urgently need.

Now is the time to act, to take a stand and take this message direct to your MP.
