From the margins to the mainstream: a study of the prospects for shared home ownership in the North West

This report from the Smith Institute today shows that the prospects for shared home ownership are positive in the North West.

It suggests that there are great opportunities for scaling up shared ownership in the region; not just for those on low to average incomes but also for older people and those who want to buy their own home.

However, they point out Government's Starter Homes Initiative, which is heavily biased towards outright ownership, threatens to undermine efforts to secure a step change in affordable shared ownership for people in the North West.
