Chrissie Pepler – Britain’s housing affordability Crisis; How did we get here? And how do we get out of it?
The government produced a White Paper in Feb 2017 which recognised that our housing model in the UK is ‘broken’. Housing is a basic human need; the lack of suitable or affordable housing creates instability for people, contributes to poor health and wellbeing and makes it very difficult for people to make a sustainable livelihood. How can we, in our local communities, respond to this basic need for affordable housing for the wellbeing of future generations?
