Home Truths: How affordable is housing for Britain’s ordinary working families?

15th July 2013

Vidhya Alakeson and Giselle Cory

One third of Britain is effectively off-limits to lower-income working families looking to rent a home privately because they can no longer afford a property in those parts of the country.

An alarming new report, Home Truths, is the first to give a comprehensive assessment of where less affluent families can reasonably afford to live, revealing that even a very modest rented home is beyond the reach of low income households in 33 per cent of all local authority areas.  

For more information contact Vidhya Alakeson, Deputy Chief Executive.
