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.
Last year’s Housing and Planning Bill was a huge attack on social housing and tenants, and the current Housing White Paper makes clear that the government’s ultimate goal is to eliminate all genuine social rents. With no controls on private rents, most private tenancies remaining on short-term contracts, and home-ownership remaining unaffordable, there is a huge housing crisis brewing.
On Saturday we’ll explore these issues in detail, inviting people personally affected or working in a housing-related role to speak. There’ll be time for questions, discussion and informal chat over tea/coffee, and in the afternoon a session devoted to action-planning. We hope this will be more than just tossing ideas around, and that people will make a start on organising things, be it lobbying, media work, supporting tenants and claimants or doing high-profile actions of some kind.
People are welcome to bring children, though we don’t have the resources to provide a creche. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Tea and coffee provided, but bring your own food or buy from nearby shops.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or on 07930966205.
