Ipsos MORI Housing Day Survey

5,155 views

Published on

The British public are positive about the contribution and value of social housing according to an Ipsos MORI poll for #HousingDay 2014. Over four in five of those not currently renting from a social landlord agree social housing is important because it helps people on lower incomes get access to housing which wouldn’t be affordable in the private rented sector. Over half of owner-occupiers and private renters support more social housing being built in their local area, and this is despite a gap in perceptions that sees the British public significantly over-estimate the size of the social renting sector across the country.
