Our aim in this paper is to stimulate debate about the role of public housing. We have set out to provide an analysis of the causes of its problematic status alongside suggestions to secure substantial improvements, that could create a housing sector better geared to providing opportunity and inclusion, rather than stressing difference and non-participation. At a time when public and political attention is turning towards ways to invest in the future of our communities there are real opportunities to improve the housing system to help a broader range of income groups and, by doing so, to create a more balanced and less crisis-prone sector.
