Housing & Homelessness

Access to affordable housing has become a growing concern over recent years, with rising rents and welfare cuts pushing more and more people into homelessness.

Our policy work includes all aspects of homelessness issues, including national and local housing strategy, homelessness policy, property conditions, improper use of temporary accommodation and tenant rights.
