“Shelter is proud to support the Fifty Thousand Homes campaign and to stand alongside business leaders calling for strong political leadership on this crucial issue. The new London Mayor must show that he has credible plans to deliver the homes London needs – homes that people on ordinary wages can actually afford to rent or buy.
“At Shelter, we see first-hand the devastating impact of London’s housing crisis on those that live and work in the capital. Businesses too are feeling the effects of their employees struggling in an impossible housing market. Sadly, the prospect of finding a secure and affordable home is slipping further out of reach for so many living and working in London.
“We are looking forward to working with members of London’s business community to help the new Mayor find solutions to deliver the affordable homes Londoners so badly need.”
