Stop uprooting families – introduce longer rental contracts now.

This petition had 11,964 supporters


We are on a rolling contract so are permanently two months away from moving. It is a horrible way to live. It never feels like home, and the anxiety it causes is immense. You don’t feel you can be part of the community as you never know when you might have to go. The more you put in, the more upset you are to lose it.

This is not the way I wanted to bring my son up. I wanted him to start and finish at the same school with his friends. I wanted him to feel settled.

The guilt, the anxiety, it certainly doesn’t do your mental health any good, not to mention the cost in moving, letting agents fees, vans, boxes, and post redirection.

I’ve lost many tears over this and I’m sure I am not the only one.
