This week the government unveiled the details of the upcoming Affordable Housing Programme which outlined a £12bn investment running from 2021 to 2026. The programme aims to increase affordable home ownership, but a government spokesperson stated that the majority of homes will be offered as shared ownership.

There will be a portion of the funding available for discounted rents and supported living options. However, the government have explained that the split between social and affordable rents will be decided at a local level.
