For many years, the UK has been in the midst of a housing ‘crisis’, and this seems unlikely to change in the near future. This book explores the current lack of housing, the challenges to first time buyers and the changing landscape for tenant and landlords. It also looks at possible solutions for the future, including flatpack housing, using empty buildings and sustainable living.
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
