RSVP – please try to let us know if you’re coming. There will be some food to share.
Whether you are an old hand, occasional helper, an ally, or just want to find out a bit more, you are very welcome!
Following AGM business (6.45) and a report of the year’s activities, this AGM will focus on one issue: safe housing.
Speakers confirmed so far:
Spruce Court Action Group, Salford, from a 22 storey block with Grenfell-style cladding and Nibe boilers
Leaseholder from Citiscape, Croydon, where cladding is now due to be replaced
Ex-fire fighter / safety officer, tower block resident and housing campaigner from Manchester who fought for lower prices on a district heating system – and won!
The Grenfell disaster exposed the chronic hazards in UK housing – often hidden behind a shiny facade – from the hazard of cold that kills nearly 10,000 a year, to the horror of fire, and the other hidden dangers from unsafe design and construction, poor standards and lack of effective regulation.
Fuel Poverty Action has been heavily engaged in the fight for warm, safe housing, and we invite you to discuss it with some experts on this issue and help explore next steps in our campaign for Safe Cladding and Insulation Now.
Fuel Poverty Action is welcoming new members, and people who want to work with us in other ways. Come along and raise your own issues, find out what’s happening, and consider how you might be part of it.
