Social housing - ask your MP to hold the Government to account

Over the summer the Government published its plans for the future of social housing. They also opened a consultation so that organisations and members of the public can contribute their thoughts and ideas.

This is an important moment in our campaign to fix the social housing system so that it works for everyone - including people with mental health problems.

And now you can help hold the Government to account on its social housing plans.

We've built this tool to make it quick and easy to email your MP to ask for their support. The template email we've written outlines some of our concerns about the Government's plans. Crucially, we've included a question for your MP to ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, James Brokenshire, in Parliament.

We think that these questions will boost awareness of the issue accross the house, and push James Brokenshire to set out the Government's plans to support those of us who are social housing tenants.

What if my MP is James Brokenshire?

James Brokenshire is the MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup, and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. We realise that it would be odd to ask the Secretary of State to ask himself a question! So if James Brokenshire is your MP we've built a different email with some key questions tailored towards him. Please do edit your email to make it personal, and please don't forget to share his response with us!
