Comic Relief Operating out of Cambridge House, based in Southwark, the Safer Renting project offers advice and advocacy to tenants at risk of eviction and living in sub-standard rented properties. Staff work in partnership with local authorities in London to intervene in illegal evictions, support people to sustain tenancies and improve the conditions in their home or find more suitable housing, and to claim their legal rights in the face of criminal landlords. As well as preventing homelessness for vulnerable individuals, the project aims to influence policy to improve conditions for renters and offer greater protection from criminal landlords. Comic Relief will contribute to staff costs and overheads.
