A Housing Group which meets once a month to share information /develop actions and campaigns to create change within areas such as:
Home Ownership being out of reach for far too many people.
The shocking state of Public Housing.
Lack of suitable / affordable / secure / long term Private Rentals. Tenants Rights or lack there of.
We appreciate any and all input in how to change our current system of housing, the rising cost of rent and the impact it plays, the lockout of the buying your first house and the increase in rental stress.
A study in April 2017 revealed that 53 per cent of tenants reported spending one-third to a half of their weekly income on rent. Rental stress occurs when a person pays more than a third of their income on rent. it also said 30 per cent of tenants are experiencing extreme rental stress by paying more than half of their weekly income on rent. Some tenants (23 per cent) said they had previously been late in paying rent due to financial strain.
