We are committed to increasing the supply of affordable homes and are investing over £12 billion in affordable housing. This is the largest investment in affordable housing since 2010.

This includes our new Affordable Homes Programme which will provide up to 180,000 affordable homes - should economic conditions allow. Around 32,000 of these will be homes for social rent.
