Mind your language when it comes to housing
We need to be inclusive in how we describe housing and get away from the emotional language of ‘cuckoos’, ‘vultures’, ‘peacocks’ and ‘ostriches’

We need to categorise housing needs and watch the language.

There is no panacea, but there should be a collective, collaborative and decipherable range of solutions for different parts of society.
