Losthaven, a city filling up fast with a generation of lost first-time buyers.
You won't find it on a map. But that doesn’t mean it’s not real. Our new research shows that every day 233* people face being priced out of the housing market. And over the next 5 years an additional 426,000* people, a city the size of Coventry, are unlikely to get on the housing ladder.
We believe every generation deserves a place to call home. So, we're on a mission to do something about it. The UK needs a long-term plan for housing, that’s why we’re pushing for change and urging those in power to make this happen.
