West Midlands region says "Unlock the Door"

Our colleagues in the West Midlands region have launched theirUnlock the Door campaign, which is part of the national Million Voices campaign.

It is calling for a commitment to deliver a million affordable homes in the UK by 2015. Shockingly there are a million fewer homes available for rent from councils and housing associations than there were in 1979.

The region has worked with the National Housing Federation and they warn that their region is facing an unprecedented surge in waiting lists for affordable housing with households facing years of waiting before they have any hope of being allocated a home.

We in the East Midlands are happy to support their campaign, not least because this is an issue that affects the whole of the UK, not just the West Midlands.
