You can join the rally live on the Action on Empty Homes Youtube channel. With 100,000 homeless families in insecure and often overcrowded Temporary Accommodation and 1.2million on the social housing waiting list our housing crisis isn't going to be solved by current housing policy. We need all empty homes to be brought back into use whether they are on council estates or second homes and short-lets across the country, or new properties built for investors to buy to leave empty. From city centres to coastal resorts and the countryside, we desperately need homes to meet local housing needs, not investment opportunities for Airbnb landlords and so-called 'second home' owners all of which are driving up rents and making many places totally unaffordable for working people to live in.
