The UK currently faces a housing crisis. Since 2010 we’ve seen a steep drop in investment for new affordable homes; billions of pounds cut from housing benefit; inaction on short-term lets; soaring rents in the private rented sector; and significant cuts to funding for homelessness services.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has shown us how important it is for everyone to have the right to a decent home. As the Shadow Secretary of State for Housing I am leading on this for the Labour Party.
On this page you will find my work in Parliament and in Bristol to campaign for meaningful action to tackle housing inequality, end homelessness and ensure that everyone has a place to call home.
