Where Will We All Live? – “Summit” for housing and benefits campaigners.


Saturday 25th March 10:30–15:30 Oxford Chambers LS1 3AU Leeds

Free but book tickets  at Facebook

Hi everyone,

Here’s the latest news about our campaign for affordable council housing, against housing profiteers and against the benefit cuts which threaten the right to keep a roof over your head.

Housing Summit

Housing Summit Saturday 25th March 10.30am to 3.30pm, at Oxford Chambers, Oxford Place, Leeds LS1 3AU – between the courts and the Town Hall in Leeds.

On Saturday 25th March, Hands Off Our Homes will be hosting a big meeting, or “Summit” for all housing campaigners, tenants groups, housing workers and support workers, trade unions, Third Sector organisations, political groupings, benefits campaigners and claimants, community groups and all individuals seeking to work for housing justice and against housing poverty. We hope that people from across the region will join us as well as those who are Leeds-based.

We have booked a large hall, from 10.30am to 3.30pm, at Oxford Chambers, Oxford Place, Leeds LS1 3AU – between the courts and the Town Hall in Leeds. The event is free (though donations to HOOH are always welcome from those who can afford it); tea and coffee will be provided, and people can bring food or buy it from local shops during the lunch break. The venue is wheelchair accessible, and not far from the main railway station.

The day will be an opportunity to learn more about housing and benefits policies affecting the availability of genuinely affordable housing, and to be updated about how local authorities and other social housing providers plan to respond to government policies and support those affected. Most of all, though, we will be focusing on getting people involved in concrete plans and strategies for building the campaign.

We have a rough outline programme, to be updated as we fill in details of speakers and the outcomes we hope for, but will be a mixture of brief presentations, discussion and hopefully formation of working groups to begin making plans. For example, some people might want to start a media group, plan a public meeting, organise a lobbying campaign or start a campaign in their workplace or community group.

If you can help us to publicise the meeting or would like us to come out and speak to your group, please get in touch with us at handsoffourhomes@gmail.com, or on 07930966205.
