Report Launch: A Home of Her Own

19 July 2019

Rising house prices and the gender pay gap means that there is no English region where a single woman on median earnings can afford to rent or buy an averagely priced house according to a new report from the Women’s Budget Group and Women’s Housing Forum. 

Funded by the Smallwood Trust as part of the Coventry Women's Partnership, the report was launched in Parliament on July 18th.

Denise Fowler, chief executive of Women’s Pioneer Housing and Co-Chair of the Women’s Housing Forum said: 

“This report highlights the link between providing women with safe, secure, good quality, affordable accommodation and the wider fight for women’s equality. Without a safe secure affordable home of her own no woman can achieve her potential.  I hope it will be a call to action across the UK.”
