Thursday 4th June, 10am-3pm, Fellows Court Community Centre, Weymouth Terrace, E2
A consultation event for people in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and the London region, on London’s first statutory Housing Strategy. It is organized by London Tenants Federation in partnership with Shelter, Planning Aid for London and Just Space Planning Network.
Alan Benson, Greater London Authority ‘Head of Housing and Homelessness’ will present the draft strategy. This will be followed by workshops and discussion with panel members on: ‘London’s housing need’, ‘A definition of ‘affordability’,‘Our homes, our Communities’ and ‘The estate experience.’
We are walking on the 17th May on the 2010 London Legal walk to raise desperately needed funds for Hackney Community Law Centre.
Our Law Centre helps the poorest and most disadvantaged people in Hackney and our social welfare law service helps to reduce poverty, homelessness and debt – which, in a time of recession, is ever more crucial. In everything we do we strive to tackle exclusion, challenge discrimination and combat exploitation.
Our Law Centre is dangerously short of funds to maintain those services and we need your help. Please support our walkers as generously as you are able.
