  • Private rented sector tenants are aware of the resources available to them

Project description

Renters’ Rights London is a project run by the Camden Federation of Private Tenants. It will focus on its work with five London local authorities, actively engaging and working with them to make sure that the authorities are aware of the issues facing the increasing numbers of private tenants living in their boroughs. The project will make sure that these local authorities are focusing their resources on supporting those in the private rented sector who are most in need of help.

Renters’ Rights London will also work with tenants so that they are fully aware of the help and support that is available to them and that they know how they can exercise their rights and voice their opinions. The combined impact will be that tenants will be more engaged in the political processes that are in place locally and able to access local support.
