#SocialHousingNow

Seb Cooke

“People in privately-rented homes are struggling as rents rocket and the result is evictions and increased homelessness, particularly for those who are mentally ill. Women’s refuge centres are closing and those escaping domestic violence have nowhere to go.

“It doesn’t have to be this way. We need well-planned, well-maintained and safe social housing for people to live in.”
