DUNDEE Training - New Deal For Tenants!

In person training in Dundee to secure a New Deal for Tenant's - Rents Down, Rights up! 

In December 2021, the Scottish Government published its ‘New deal for tenants,’ a strategy document that outlines visions and questions to improve the private and socially rented sector in Scotland.
The document is out for consultation and public response until the 15th of April. This is a key opportunity to push for rent controls, greater security of tenure, better rights and democracy for tenants. It’s crucial for Living Rent to push for this, as landlord and developer lobbies are pushing hard against any further rights for tenants and if we aren’t heard in this consultation, their needs and vision will dominate the debate (and bury rent controls to another era!).

Living Rent members across Scotland are running a 6 week campaign to get 1000s of responses. To do this, the union needs to be well prepared. We are holding training dates in Edinburgh to get folk ready, whether you have been a member for 2 days or 2 years, it would be great to have you as part of this, your voice matters.

The training will cover: 
  • Overview of the consultation/legislative process 
  • Content of Living Rent’s answer (focus on rent controls, security, quality, democracy and rights) 
  • Talking points for each of the demands 
  • Admin and follow up after a stall 

The training will start at 11.15am sharp and then we'll head over to Albert Square for 1pm to practice our new skills at The Cost Of Living Crisis Demonstration.
