Life off the ladder

Join us at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for a panel discussion focusing on the rise of the long term renter. Hear from expert speakers, be inspired and share your views.

There are 11 million people in the UK off the housing ladder and in private renting, up dramatically from previous generations. Over half of Londoners rent. Whether through choice or necessity, more people are renting and for longer.

Join us to discuss the rise of the long-term renter.

Should we accept that Britain's home-owning dream has ended? Can we improve rights for renters so life off the ladder in the 21st Century can be something to celebrate not commiserate?

Find out more, be inspired by our expert speakers and share your views.


Rosie Walker, Co-author of The Rent Trap and Coordinator of Renters' Rights London.
