Weekly Economics Briefing 3: Renters, homelessness and coronavirus

Featuring NEF senior researcher Hanna Wheatley, councillor Diarimaid Ward, and Acorn national organiser Anny Cullum

Watch our online call with NEF senior researcher Hanna Wheatley, Islington councillor Diarmaid Ward, and Acorn national organiser Anny Cullum.

At the end of last month, the Government gave councils 48 hours to house all rough sleepers in their areas. A temporary ban on evictions has also been put in place, and the Government have called for landlords to be compassionate’ in their dealings with tenants. 

But are these measures enough? What has been the experience of tenants and the homeless community so far during the crisis? And what changes should we be pushing for now?

If you value great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF today.
