The need for more affordable housing is a problem for the Jewish community, just as much as for country as a whole. This community being concentrated in areas where the cost of housing of all tenures is higher than average.

Also the problem is exacerbated for Orthodox Jews who cannot travel on the Sabbath and other Jewish festivals, as their families, Synagogues and communities are increasingly not within walking distance of their home.

Larger Jewish families in the community continue to struggle to find accommodation that can house all of their relatives, with recent changes to welfare provision adding further challenges for some families.
