The demand for affordable homes is growing all of the time, especially from families, first-time buyers and young people. At the same time, older people and those with special care requirements want a home that can be adapted to their needs so they can live there for as long as possible.

Here you’ll find advice and best practice on boosting the supply of affordable homes, whether it’s in the heart of a major city or a rural area. You can also learn more about different housing models, such as private rented, shared ownership and community trusts. It's not just about new supply - there's information on the efforts to bring empty homes back into use and the decent homes initiative to improve social housing.
