Dream of a 'forever home' beyond future generations

Four out of five people in Yorkshire believe it'll be impossible for future generations to have a home to settle down in, according to a new survey.

Research for the housing charity Shelter has also revealed that many 25 to 34-year-olds are moving much more frequently than pensioners did during their lifetime.

The Ipsos MORI survey was commissioned by Shelter and British Gas as part of a study into the meaning of home in Great Britain today.

This new research marks the launch of the charity's Great Home Debate.

Campbell Robb, Chief Executive of Shelter, said: "The fact that vast numbers of people fear their grandchildren will never have a home to put down roots in highlights the sad truth that this country is once again at the mercy of a housing crisis.

"While we have made progress over the last 50 years, our current housing shortage means millions are facing a lifetime of instability and, understandably, people are giving up hope.

"But if our history tells us anything, it's that together we can make things change.

"For the sake of future generations, we cannot make this crisis someone else's problem.

"We're urging the nation to tell us what they really need from a home - so we can better help those who aren't lucky enough to have one. At Shelter, we won't stop until we all have a place to call home."
