Join your tenant's union and be part of the fight for better conditions in our community.

Living Rent’s Govanhill branch was established in June 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, to organise to improve the rights of tenants in both the private and social sector.

Since being established, members have mobilised around our cleansing campaign to demand greater investment in services from Glasgow Council, fought and supported members and tenants to get repairs and stop evictions and stood with other local branches to fight cuts to council services across the city. Our membership is steadily growing as we agitate for the changes our community needs as a collective.

Our cleansing campaign staged a day of action in December and achieved a meeting with the head of the Glasgow council. However, we are still waiting on firmer commitments and our demands for greater investments to be met and will continue organising until then!

In March 2021, we held an online virtual branch launch, which elected our committee.
