This commentary reflects on how the coronavirus has brought experiences of ‘home’ into public, policy and media debates. We suggest it has also revealed the significance of links between housing and home on the one hand and relationships and practices of care in the other. We explore these links and, in particular, the importance of intersectionalised inequalities in access to both home and care. We briefly discuss ways of conceptualising these linkages and seeing them as part of broader social and economic relations, arguing for further academic, popular and policy attention to be given to housing and care.
