  • Member defence: Storytelling our wins

    As more and more members win better housing conditions through member defence, it’s important to celebrate such successes (and reflect on what could have been done better!). One of the most effective ways to do this is to ‘story-tell’ our victories, showing that we can and do win. This training will provide an introduction to storytelling and to the victories that Living Rent members have achieved just last year, for all members of the union and anyone else interested in seeing how to use storytelling to support organising.

  • Communications: Spokesperson training

    During an action, following in a journalist request or just preparing a speech can feel overwhelming. Come to this training to practice how to speak to journalists and to a group, by preparing your communications and by getting tips from each other. This training aims to build each other’s confidence so more and more members can feel able to speak up and as such to ensure that our voices, experiences and needs are heard. We will focus on key aspects of Living Rent’s national demands, to support more and more members to speak about the national picture

  • With 75% of all dwellings in Scotland having some degree of disrepair, and 57% of homes below the EPC energy C rating, repairs and efficiency are two of Scottish tenants’ deepest concerns. Come learn about how to effectively pressure your landlord to adhere to the repairing and tolerable standards, and, as many repairs issues are shared by your neighbours, fight for better standards in your block.

  • Political education: Rent struggles

    Our housing reflects countless struggles and attempts by tenants to make way for better housing, whether through rent strikes, organising committees, or fights to keep public control over homes and for new social housing to be genuinely affordable. Tenant organising has always shaped both public and social housing. Come to this session to learn about Scotland’s inspiring history of tenants’ struggle against sustained efforts to undermine tenants’ voices. The session will examine how the union’s everyday fights both connect to and diverge from this history and explore together how we can be inspired by the past as we fight for the future.
