Upcoming Events

Here are our upcoming events

  • Aberdeen Training Day!

    Aberdeen Living Rent group is growing strong, join us for this day of training and planning!



    It doesn't matter if you've been with Living Rent for 5 years or 5 minutes. Now is the perfect time to get involved. As we strategise, plan our next steps, choose a campaign and elect a new organising team to coordinate those plans.

    There will be training on all things Living Rent to give members the tools they need to strengthen the group and grow our power in the city!

    It's an amazing opportunity to come together to make some concrete plans.

    There will be a few comfort breaks, an hour for lunch and a wee social afterwards too. 

    Agenda and some reading materials will be sent out before the day.

    If you have any access requirements or questions of any kind - reach out to Kerri.
