The Last Clarion Tenant’s Story Evidences The Social Housing Crisis in UK

Mould and damp growing, exterior doors that don’t lock, electric wiring exposed, rat droppings everywhere and toilet bowl encrusted with faeces are some of the issues which this mother of three has to deal every day.*

Disrepair, neglect and humiliation – this is the reality for many living in social housing across UK. Poor conditions in homes and on estates have had a detrimental impact on tenants’ health, wellbeing and quality of life.

People face long delays in getting repairs fixed, and then often see them done to a poor standard. While housing associations have vowed to improve and better conditions, many are sceptical about whether this will happen.

“At the offices of this mum’s Tory MP, Stephen Hammond, staff have to deal with Clarion on residents’ behalf every day. In the constituency next door, Labour’s Siobhain McDonag’s comments made the newspapers in 2021 for estimating Clarion comprised half fer casework. It’s just a high today, the MP tells The Guardian: “I don’t think that their tenants and leaseholder will have seen any improvement”.
