Social housing has provided decent, affordable homes for millions of people over the past 150 years .
Over the past 40 years social rented housing has been attacked and denigrated by many, and relegated to tenure of last resort. Its occupants are stigmatised by parts of the media as scroungers and workshy layabouts. Instead of investment in bricks and mortar, governments have increasingly subsidised rising rents rather than affordable homes.
The Campaign for Social Housing - SHOUT - Social Housing Under Threat, aims to drive policy to reverse this decimation of an invaluable resource.
