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.
The whole situation has had such a negative affect on both me and my family so far and I feel like we are now in crisis and am desperate for any support you may be able to offer. Shelter’s media team and the Local government Ombudsman are currently investigating my complaint but are unable to assist with any new incidents or further offers of accomodation.
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.
