Call You and Yours: What have you done to help the people you love get decent housing?

Consumer phone-in. What have you done to help the people you love get decent housing?

Call You & Yours is asking what have you done to help the people you love get decent housing?

Almost one in four first-time buyers now gets help from family and friends. But a report today suggests one in five of those footing the deposits are having to sacrifice their own standards of living to help out.

Are you are helping a child or grandchild on to the property ladder, paid for a loved one's deposit to rent a home, or welcomed grown-up children back into your home while they save, let us know.

Or alternatively if you're on the receiving end of the "Bank of Mum and Dad" - how are you being helped out, and why?

The number to call after 11am is 03700 100 444 [standard network charges apply; mobiles may be higher].
