Shelter Cymru’s response to the Housing and Local Government Committee Inquiry into Social Housing Supply

May 2024

Summary:
We welcome the opportunity to provide evidence on this topic. Increasing the supply of social homes, and in particular, homes for social rent sits at the very heart of tackling the housing emergency we face.

Without an adequate number of social homes, it will never be possible to ensure that everyone in Wales has access to a safe, secure, suitable, and affordable home. In fact, whatever ambitions we may set in housing policy, whether it be ensuring quality, ending homelessness, or improving affordability; the supply of social housing has a crucial role to play.
