SHAC – People Centred Housing and Homelessness Policies
Our new policy statements sets out a series of demands aimed at providing widespread, affordable social housing and rolling back the commercialisation of the sector, particularly housing associations. It places the needs of people rather than profits and surpluses at the heart of housing policy.
The paper was produced following extensive consultation with individual tenants, residents, leaseholders, housing workers, and housing activists, as well as their representative bodies, and some of the contributions are listed below. We are grateful to all who made a contribution.
SHAC is interested in hearing your views on the policy, and any suggestions for further refinement. Please use the comments section to submit your ideas.
