Why homes must be at the heart of recovery - factsheet

The coronavirus crisis has underlined the need for high quality, well-designed and affordable homes. During the crisis, our relationship with our home has changed dramatically – becoming a sanctuary for many and a prison for some – and home has never been more important to us than it is now.

Our #HomesAtTheHeart campaign is calling for housing to be at the heart of the nation’s recovery. A long-term, once-in-ageneration investment in social housing that provides everyone with a safe, comfortable and affordable
home can be the catalyst for social and economic recovery.
