Peer Pressure by Post: Build Social Housing

Ask the Lords to support our amendments

We want to change the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill so councils and developers build more social homes. To do that, we need you – again! 
Last month, over 4,000 Shelter supporters emailed Lords and asked them to put social housing at the heart of this Bill. It worked. A third of peers who spoke in the debate mentioned the need for more social housing. This wouldn’t have happened without Shelter supporter like you contacting them.

Now we need Lords to support our amendments. 

The bill is at Committee Stage (when they can debate and change the bill). But, 4,000 of you have already, quite successfully, emailed them. So, what next? We thought you could help us send them a few postcards! 

Put your details in and we’ll pick you a random peer pen pal and send your postcard straight to their pigeonhole. 
Why not add a message?: Do you live in social housing? Or do you work in a profession that is impacted by not having enough social housing? We have space for a short personal message on why social housing is so important. We need more social housing urgently - but last year we lost 14,000 social homes. Help us amend this bill and get social housing built again.
