On March 28th, 2020, tenants across Scotland came together, showing the government and landlords that during a global pandemic, they won't be silenced.
Volunteer with Living Rent - responding to coronavirus
We need to stick together. If you want to volunteer with Living Rent, sign up below and our local organisers will get in touch and direct you to your local branch. We won no evictions through tenant power, but we won't stop there. These groups will fight local authorities, landlords, and the government to prevent the pandemic from exacerbating existing inequalities. Our volunteers are brought together to defend private and social tenants to be protected against evictions and disrepair and negotiate rent reductions.
Our organisers also have links with neighbourhood mutual aid groups, that focus on care packages and supporting the vulnerable in their neighbourhoods, making sure our communities are resilient during this pandemic. If you want to get involved with this kind of mutual aid you can follow these links:
