Newcastle: What’s at stake for housing?
Thurs 19 Feb | Royal Station Hotel, NE1 5DH | 6.30pm | Refreshments | Free
Class is holding a series of events across the country that will discuss what’s at stake at the General Election in May, with an event in Newcastle on Thursday 19 February and we really hope you can join us.
With the general election less than 100 days away, the debate about how we get fairness and greater equality in Britain – from protecting the NHS and public services to improving housing, pay and rights at work – is more urgent than ever.
Our housing event will debate what is at stake in the General Election, making the case for a big increase in social housing and looking at how we build affordable homes in the places they are needed
Housing is set to be one of the biggest issues at the General Election. Too many people are struggling with spiralling rents, unaffordable mortgages, growing social housing waiting lists and a lack of both social housing and truly affordable housing. Housing policy needs to be about much more than just bricks and mortar – it needs to offer future generations hope for a secure future and the ability to build their lives within strengthened local communities.
