Started in 2019, our ever-growing housing action group emerged from discussions around housing in one of our classes in Southwark.
The group was set up following a workshop on housing rights, run by Housing Action Southwark and Lambeth (HASL).
The students wanted a space dedicated to looking at common housing problems ESOL students face, and where they could go to get support with them. The group now has over 30 members and it meets monthly.
The meetings are co-run by EFA and HASL, and so far we’ve taken action on overcrowded housing in Southwark and nationally, as well as highlighted the impact of long waits in temporary accommodation.
