To cover their vital needs and participate actively in society, every person needs access to decent housing. For young people, as they start forming their own home, housing will condition their emancipation and autonomy, which in turn will ultimately condition the population’s fertility rate. For families faced with the growth of their households, their housing will condition their access to work, education and social opportunities. And for elderly people, in the process of reduction of their households, housing quality will condition the quality of their ageing.
Within the current context, with many people suffering difficulties in accessing housing due to socioeconomic reasons, all system agents can make a contribution to facilitate people’s lives. This idea led to the creation of the Affordable Rental Programme.
