In twenty-first-century Britain, unsafe homes are a matter of life and death.

Award-winning journalist Vicky Spratt traces decades of bad decisions to show how the British dream of secure housing for all has withered. This fierce and moving account tells the stories of those on the frontline, illuminating the ways this national emergency cuts across the country, where the safety net of social housing has unravelled in exchange for profit, and communities have been devastated beyond recognition. Everybody deserves the chance of a safe and stable home, and this urgent, ground-breaking book leads the way.
