Homes At The Heart

HomesAtTheHeart campaign second week

This week the #HomesAtTheHeart campaign's second week of action is highlighting why homes are at the heart of making ends meet, and how investment in social housing helps people to have a decent and secure home that they can afford.

Willow Tree Housing provides a mix of tenures to help people access housing including social rent, affordable rent, Rentplus and shared ownership. At our Brent Knoll in Somerset site we even have our first outright sale homes under construction.

We have provided over 300 new homes in the last 5 years and have sustainable growth plans for even more homes!

The Coronavirus lockdown has been difficult for everyone, with space being even more important for people; whether that is for a home office space, or simply having enough room for the whole family to be inside, without feeling on top of each other. Our own build developments are built to the Nationally Described Space Standards, as a minimum, to try and ensure our homes as big enough for real family life.The campaign is calling for an ambitious plan for building 90,000 homes for social rent, matched by investment, to make sure many more people have the homes they need.

That's why Willow Tree Housing is supporting #HomesAtTheHeart and calling on the Government to make a once-in-a-lifetime investment in social housing and to put social homes at the heart of the plan for social and economic recovery following the Coronavirus crisis
