Many of us just can't afford to pay rent or our mortgage without any income coming in!

make suspending rent and mortgage payments a priority
Let’s urgently call on the government to back this plan as part of its support package, and help people stay home to stay safe -- starting with the most vulnerable and those most at risk of losing their jobs and incomes.
