To: Gavin Barwell -Housing and Planning minister.

We need affordable housing now!

We need affordable housing now!

We would like affordable homes for all people. Increase the amount of affordable housing available, and reassess what 'affordable' should mean.

Why is this important?

Affordable homes are not affordable for all, 86% of renters (thats over 6 million households) have less than the £8,800 needed for even a 5% deposit for a mortgage on an average first home in the UK. 95% have less than the deposit needed (£35,354) for a mortgage on an average first home in the UK.
Young people especially are suffering, we might not own a home before we're 25, we'll have one by age 30 if we're really lucky. Housing is a human right, and the opportunity to be able to have somewhere secure to live should be accessible to all. This inequality should not be allowed to continue.
