SHAC calls on housing associations to take a positive lead in the housing association sector by agreeing to cease evictions for the foreseeable future and waive rents and service charges for those suffering economically as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. We call on them not to add to the growing numbers of homeless people on our streets, nor being forced to live in overcrowded accommodation.
It is time for housing associations to agree #NoEvictions. Protests by a broad alliance of housing campaign groups including SHAC, successfully extended the initial evictions ban and lengthened the notice period for possession orders. These were important victories, but more could be done and SHAC will continue to press for improved tenancy protections.
