Shawlands is a great place to live, but landlords and letting agents are making it harder for ordinary people to stay here.
After getting together in January 2020, Living Rent Shawlands members have been working hard to build their branch. The local Member Defence team successfully overturned the eviction of two members, Cally and Toby who, like many other tenants, lost their jobs during the pandemic and could no longer afford their rents. Since November, Shawlands members have joined forces with their neighbourhood branch in Pollokshields and campaigned for the reopening of their local library.
Increasingly, we are seeing however that our library is tied to a broader threat of cuts across Glasgow. Read our statement here!
Branch details: Our branch meetings are currently held in the first Tuesday of the month, 6.30-8pm
Next branch meeting: Tuesday 3rd August, 6.30-8pm at the Shawlands United Reformed Church (111 Moss-Side Rd, Shawlands G41 3TP)
