Too many young people don’t have a place to call home. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

One of the solutions is simple: get building genuinely affordable homes. Building more affordable housing will give more young people a chance at having a safe and stable base. 

Many young people are stuck either in poor rental properties or supported housing. By signing this petition, you will be showing the Government that we must enter a new era of housebuilding to equip the UK with the safe, warm, affordable homes that our communities need.

The more people that sign, the more we can show those in power there is a need for change. Now's our chance.

What we're calling for

To help young people, we believe the Government must:

  • Local authorities should be required to consider the housing needs of young people
  • Increase Government grants to those building genuinely affordable homes
  • Improve the ability for organisations to fast track planning and financial applications for those wanting to build affordable homes
