The cost of living crisis is putting a squeeze on incomes and living standards. As a result, many people are struggling to pay expensive rents and mortgages on top of soaring energy and other household bills.
Despite high rent costs, many people living in rented homes are struggling with disrepair.
UNISON is conducting a survey to find out more about the housing issues members are facing. All respondents will be entered into a prize draw for £50 worth of high street shopping vouchers.
In 2020, UNISON surveyed members on their experiences with housing, finding that three in five people (61%) were struggling to manage their housing costs.
At the time, almost one in three (27.8%) said that the cost of housing is making them look outside of their public sector roles to find better-paid work.
Now, as the cost of living crisis bites, UNISON wants to know from members their experiences of housing in order to understand what the union’s campaigning priorities should be.
