HASL legal workshop

protest-housing-evictions

We recently received this from our friends in Housing Action for Southwark and Lambeth

HASL will be running a legal workshop looking at recent developments to homelessness law that will have positive implications our cases for the work we do. Come join us to learn the law and fight for more!

Wednesday 5th August 6.30pm-8.30pm Global Justice Now, 66 Offley road, Oval, SW9 0LS

The workshop will look at two important legal decisions made this year.

One which opens up the previously very limited definition of who is in ‘priority need’ for single homeless applicants. (see here)

And the second development looks at out-of-borough placements – which will be relevant for both temporary accommodation and the final, permanent accommodation offered by the council. If you have a homeless duty with the council, this will be particularly relevant *(see here)

Open to everyone involved in HASL and those interested in getting involved!

Please let us know if you’re planning on coming so that we can keep track of numbers. Refreshments provided. Please let us know in advance if you need childcare so we can try to organise this.
