This chronic shortage of housing is having an impact across the country. Young people and families are struggling to get on the property ladder. Those renting privately are now having to pay record sums, on average 41% of their income just to keep a roof over their heads. It’s also affecting those who want to upsize to a bigger home but are finding they can’t bridge the gap between what they own and where they want to move to. And for those who have just joined a waiting list for a social home, there are 1.7 million families already in the queue

private_renting_sectore.jpgSince the last time UK voters went to the polls, a huge shift in the landscape of British society has become clear. For a country that has long taken home ownership for granted, the number of people who are able to afford it has been falling. As a result, the number of people stuck renting from private landlords has doubled in the past decade.

This coincides with a number of important policy developments including the announcement of a new accessibility standard for all newly built homes, an increased focus on the deployment of adaptations services to help older people live independently, the Care Act 2014 placing greater emphasis on the role of housing in the delivery of health and social care, and calls for a dramatic increase in the supply of retirement housing to extend the options available to older people.

Twice a year - once in celebration of New Year’s in December and once on the occasion of the Queen’s official birthday in June - the British Government announces its lists of people who have received Honours. This year, I was fortunate and grateful to have been one of the thousand or so people who received the letter that announced we had been recognised. I am now proud to be a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (a CBE), awarded for political service, which has mostly been focused on building strong ties between China, Chinese communities and the Labour Party.
