Supporting the Homes At The Heart campaign

Supporting the Homes At The Heart campaign
COVID-19 and the potential economic impact of the crisis further highlights the need for high quality affordable homes and, for many people, support to live in them.
As Bolton at Home and a member of the Greater Manchester Housing Providers partnership, we’re supporting the #HomesAtTheHeart campaign.
 
The campaign is led by the National Housing Federation and is asking Government to put quality affordable housing at the heart of plans for social and economic recovery from the pandemic, highlighting that:
 
  • public investment in housing gives back to the economy;
  • building and improving homes creates jobs and brings huge environmental benefit;
  • supporting people to live well in their homes improves health and wellbeing, and saves the NHS;
  • social housing is at the centre of thriving communities.
 
The National Housing Federation has written an open letter to the Chancellor Rishi Sunak in partnership with the Association of Retained Council Housing, Chartered Institute of Housing, Crisis – the national charity for people who are homeless, and the National Federation of ALMOs. It says that home has never been more important than during the coronavirus crisis.
