East London housing networking and actions every week and every month

Monthly campaign meeting 

Saturday 7 April 2.30-4.30pm at Sylvia’s Corner, 97 Aldworth Road, London E15 4DN.
Incredible jubilation happened across the borough of Newham when the news that Robin Wales had lost and will no longer be the Labour Party candidate for Mayor of Newham in this May’s elections.

However, Focus E15 campaign knows full well that the fight for decent council housing does not end with Robin Wales’ deselection.
We have signed up to the Newham People’s Charter. We will continue to insist on housing rights of all and we will hold the incoming council and the new Mayor to account. Take part in the debates and discussions at the next meeting and get involved with Focus E15 campaign – which remains independent from all political parties.
Together we are stronger!

Stand with Sara
We continue to emphasise that there is No such thing as Intentional Homelessness and we demand that Sara be housed in Newham.

Newham council has discharged their duty to house Sara since she refused the offer of housing in Birmingham with her two young children. This would mean taking her child out of school, moving away from all the family and friends and support networks that she has in her community. She said no. Newham council says she has refused a reasonable offer. Appeals have not worked. Sara now faces street homelessness or being taken in by friends or family. We must ensure that Sara and all those in similar situation are housed in their communities. Newham has thousands of empty homes. Join us to demand that they are used now!
