Covid-19 & housing
May 07, 2020 Season 1 Episode 3

Many people were struggling to make ends before the pandemic. The lockdown has only exacerbated this issue. We have seen people in precarious work and without a financial safety net fall into debt and rent arrears, with some landlords unsympathetic. We want to explore what level of housing quality is a ‘right’ and cannot be tied to an individual's socioeconomic status, and whether that minimum should or will change because of this pandemic. This week we are joined by Debbie Green (Coastal Housing Association), Rachael Evans (Tenants Union) & Isaac Henry (Greater Manchester Housing Association).
