‘The Numbers Game’ is the fourth in the joint PwC and L&Q ‘Hard Times’ series of publications.

This fourth report examines how to boost affordable housing supply in a changing housing market. It seeks new ways to develop a better functioning housing sector, more strategically shaped by national and local government, and with a range of effective funding mechanisms to try to drive new home volumes.

At its heart is the concept of social equity: both a fairer housing market that offers more people hope of getting the homes they need at a price they can reasonably afford, and a specific funding mechanism – the Social Equity Fund – which we believe can help make that happen.
