The Intergenerational Foundation (IF) is extremely concerned by the housing crisis that is currently affecting young people in the UK.

They believe that unless the supply of housing increases significantly, millions of young people, who desire the security and responsibility of owning their own home, face being unable to fulfil that dream.

Responsible governments have a duty to balance the interests of young people today with the interests of young people to come.

In order for housing policy to be ‘intergenerationaly’ fair, it must put in place a housing strategy that addresses the housing crisis over the long term.
