Demand for 100,000 social rented homes

Four leading organisations have called on the government to spend £6.35 billion in the next two years to create 100,000 new social rented homes, which would give an ‘immediate social and financial return’ to the economy. HHSE, along with the Local Government Association, National Housing Federation and the TUC, are arguing that housing provides an opportunity to rebuild economic activity, creating thousands of jobs, maintaining skills, and safeguarding the ability to build homes that Britain needs.
