Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour have promised 500,000 brand new council homes, plus another 500,000 truly affordable homes, whilst suspending the Right To Buy until local authorities can ensure our council stock is not being sold off to landlords or for students. Labour will bring back the family home!
Let me know what you think about these housing polices, will these policies make a difference to your lives?
Are you one of the 10,000 people who have recently been taken off the council housing waiting list?
If so let me know your thoughts and as always please share.
I first came across Callum last May when I was living in Percival Terrace, which is unsupported emergency accomodation, I remember seeing him outside with residents who were not the type he should’ve been hanging around with.
After hearing Joey’s story I simply had to help, he was in foster care from 2 years old, due to a difficult start to his life, essentially neglected! – Having spent his whole childhood in foster care, Joey as teenager was left to fend for himself, in and out of leaving care placements Joey, like many other previously looked after children got into crime and difficulty, some of which he describes as bad treatment from staff.
Together we can make changes. If you want to get involved in saving kings house get in touch, it would be good to get a campaign and organising team together and start lobbying for a change in policy here.
There is no denying that the tories have well and truly banged the final nail in the coffin, this is evident in documentaries around homelessness. The right to buy was a killer policy for the vulnerable and hard working class, whilst they did allow many to move forward and own there own home, many were sold and are now collecting revenues from Housing benefit payments, not going back into society but instead to private landlords.
Our labour council are failing around housing issues, we keep providing the evidence and nothing is done, they aren’t challenging the officers and double checking standards, they simply aren’t listening hard enough.
Bobby needs, deserves and has a right to accommodation that is suited to the challenges he faces.
Hove CLP AGM 2017, Cancelled. Why? Hmm
As a lawyer surely you go into law to make changes, no? well in Brighton and Hove we need change, I am a housing campaigner who is in contact with multiple people who all qualify for legal aid and legal help.
These are vulnerable persons who have been accepted the homeless duty under the housing act 1996. Many of the people I speak to are in desperate need of legal advice, you see in Brighton and Hove we have an issue, for some reason solicitors don’t touch housing cases against Brighton and Hove City Council, and why would they, because the council boast not losing a judicial review all the time.
Me I believe this council have become over confident and complacent, there is enough evidence gained now to take this council and certain individuals down.
I am writing this blog on behalf of the people who come to me almost daily in desperation, they literally have nothing, no hope no future.
If you are a lawyer, or barrister who does pro bono and are reading this, then get in tough with me, united we can get justice for the vulnerable in Brighton and Hove and really help to change our society.
Do you have experience of section 202’s? recent judicial reviews have been successful I believe the new allocations policy in place in Brighton and Hove to be illegal and welcome any legal professional willing to overturn this hopeless policy.
You can contact me by emailing email@example.com
Brighton and Hove City Council have begun the council waiting list cull, announced back in November 2015 the new allocations policy was designed to remove home seekers by cutting thousands of people from the register.
In a move in which literally the bulldozers are coming in to break down peoples hopes and dreams for a home.
