The right to a decent, affordable and secure home is one of the basic foundations of social justice. Sadly in the Tory Britain that right has never been more remote for thousands of our fellow citizens. That is why Labour Housing Group (LHG) seeks to ensure that housing of the highest possible standard is available for all members of the community regardless of their means.
LHG is the forum for people across the Labour movement who are campaigning to end the housing crisis. Since the 1970s, we’ve been at the forefront of developing practical and radical housing policies at local and national level, ensuring that Labour-led Councils and Labour Governments have the tools they need to end the injustice and deliver real change.
We are a national organisation, but have roots right around the country and our members include MPs, Peers, Councillors and grassroots activists. We have close links with Labour’s Shadow Cabinet team, helping them to develop the policies that will underpin the next Labour Government’s drive to reverse the Tory housing crisis. We also work with Labour local Councils up and down the country, sharing good practice and championing the tremendous work that Labour Councillors are doing to deliver better housing and tackle homelessness.
Please take a look around our website to find out more about what we do, but most of all, please do join LHG today. Working together, we can reverse the housing crisis and ensure the next Labour Government delivers a housing agenda of which we can be truly proud.
