Have had a stark reminder today that young people are extremely angry at Social Housing providers & indeed at some of the tenants thereof. The next generation of this country can see no way of getting accommodation. They can’t afford to buy, They are not “Needy/Vulnerable” enough to play into the criteria for housing Associations to feel good about themselves & offer Social Housing; So they languish at 20-something sharing bedrooms in their parents homes..
Not just for the Vulnerable/Needy.
The reforms will make lower rental value landlords avoid renting to those in receipt of Housing Benefits (many of whom are those in work).
There is also an estimated 9000 fewer homes available now – with waiting lists rising.
With an education system pushing young adults to become more than they ever could before, how can they possibly be expected to “dumb-down” to get a Social Housing property?
WHY SHOULD THEY?
