In this video, Suzannah Young, Policy Officer at the National Housing Federation interviews Ria Armstrong Neighbourhood Services Advisor and Traveller Site Manager at Teign Housing about the role social housing can play in settled futures for Gypsy and Traveller communities.
Our homes have never been more important to us than they have been during the coronavirus crisis. For some people, home has been a sanctuary. For others, it has been a prison. Everyone deserves a safe, secure, comfortable place to call home. Not just now, in the middle of this crisis, but always.
Investing in social housing makes this possible. It will also boost the economy, create jobs and improve people’s lives when our nation needs it most.
That’s why we’ve launched Homes at the Heart, a national campaign and coalition calling for a once-in-a-generation investment in social housing.
