Fairer for People
Fairer for Community
Fairer for Planet
We are a network of groups and organisations unified through a housing charter which aims to identify and improve key areas to make housing (and community land use) fairer. Members of the network work collaboratively in order to address key issues and make alternative housing more accessible. We believe that by working together, we can make a bigger, more positive and effective impact.
Housing is a human right; everyone has a right to a safe and secure home.
Ensuring that community is at the heart of decision-making.
Recognising the links between energy, water, housing and transport to better serve the needs of people and the planet.
