Uncomfortable Home Truths – the People’s Manifesto for Fair Housing in Birmingham

As Jane Haynes writes in a powerful report in today’s Birmingham Mail:

Fast trains and the Games won’t level up Birmingham – people need decent homes

‘The report poses a direct challenge to everyone with a stake in the city’s future, including the Government, Birmingham City Council, the regional mayor’s office, MPs, developers and planners, landlords and housing associations, residents and businesses – urging them all to play their part in ‘levelling up’ our city.’

Join the Campaign

Birmingham Fair Housing Campaign has carved out a ‘People’s Manifesto for Fair Housing’. Our campaign brings together people directly affected by the housing crisis as well as our allies. 

Our vision is for everyone in our city to have a safe, secure and affordable home and for this to be a human right. You can read our full manifesto here. https://england.shelter.org.uk/support_us/campaigns/community_organising_birmingham

To make our vision a reality, we’re demanding the following from our political leaders and decision-makers:

  • WE WANT SOCIAL HOUSING 
  • WE WANT RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE IN EMERGENCY AND TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION 
  • WE WANT RIGHTS FOR RENTERS 
  • WE WANT AN END TO DISCRIMINATION 
  • WE WANT HOUSING WITH COMPASSION 
  • WE WANT AN END TO HOMELESSNESS 

We need as many Brummies as possible to take a stand, join the campaign, and help make Birmingham a place we can all call home. Please, join the campaign today.
