Renting has doubled in the past decade but there is still no protection from high rents, short tenancies and squalid properties. For the past year and a half Generation Rent has been organising renters and giving them a voice in the media and in politics.
Generation Rent needs your help. We unexpectedly have only two months of funding left. There is a real danger that the campaign will simply vanish, and with it the national voice of private renters in the media and political debate.
We are working hard to secure new sources of long term funding, but this will take months and we need your help now. We need to raise £60,000 by 31 August. These funds would allow us to continue our work empowering renters to put pressure on Parliament, the London mayoral candidates and local councils while applying for grants and building a sustainable organisation.
Please donate just £20 – or what you can afford – on our crowdfunding site, People’s Republic, who are kindly waiving their fees because they like us so much.
But as long as millions of private renters are:
- handing over more than half of their income to their landlord
- face losing their home with two months’ notice, and
- live in damp, draughty and dangerous properties
...our work is not over.
The housing crisis is not going away anytime soon. With your donation, neither will Generation Rent.
