I have a new blog called housingacrisis.com which aims to turn the housing crisis from the abstract into the reality it is for people whose lives are being affected. Every Wednesday there will be a post detailing the experiences of another person or family.

One of the things I often get told by constituents over the phone is that they feel like nobody is listening to them, that nobody knows what is happening to them.

My hope is for this blog to act as an invitation to the constituents of East Ham to be heard, and an invitation to you to be someone who is ready to listen.

Please join this journey by becoming an email subscriber (just scroll to the bottom of the homepage). Housingacrisis.com can also be found on twitter @CrisisHousing.
