Britain’s in a housing emergency.

Kwajo Tweneboa has been on the frontline of the social housing crisis, bringing awareness to the poor conditions of disrepair many of our most vulnerable are forced to live with. He knows better than anyone the brutal realities the UK is facing, from the decimation of our welfare services to the rising poverty rates as the cost-of-living crisis continues.

Through explaining how we got here to documenting his first-hand experiences; speaking to Grenfell survivors and Awaab Ishak’s parents to describing his own story, he wants to show the human truths of our crisis behind the chilling statistics.

This is how we rebuild.

From living in disrepair himself and experiencing the neglect from the systems designed to protect, he has gone on to advise government officials on policy, and has become a fierce activist and advocate for the unheard in our society. In Our Country in Crisis he looks at inspiring case studies from countries getting it right and gives clear direction for how we can create meaningful change and rebuild our society with stronger foundations.

For readers of manifestos for change such as It’s Not That Radical by Mikaela Loach, Poverty Safari by Darren McGarvey and Tenants by Vicky Spratt, this is the fresh new voice and perspective we need.
