How to talk about private renting

When we talk about improving housing, people often focus on the desire to own a home, with private renting seen as a temporary step along the way.

As a result, improving renting is not always seen and understood as a vital part of what needs to happen to ensure everyone in the UK has a decent, affordable place to call home. Other gaps in understanding can also get in the way of support for policies that would improve private renting.
