Wednesday's (4 October) launch of the Social and Affordable Housing Initiative was a call to action on the UK’s spiralling housing crisis. Co-led by John McAslan + Partners, UCL and Dolphin Living, the initiative is supported by the report 'Design for all – a place to call home' from researchers at UCL in London.
The report details the health, social and economic impacts of homelessness and precarious housing. A transformative national housing plan could save £1.5 billion each year in homelessness-related costs, and the report features exemplar housing projects.
