Since November 2020, we have been supporting private renters in Southwark to avoid eviction and overcome barriers to housing stability. The Covid Private Renters Project is based on our Rent Support Programme Plus and was developed to offer immediate, intensive support to renters facing eviction or insecure tenancies. We have proudly partnered with Southwark Law Centre to provide both legal, practical and emotional support services, working alongside Southwark Council’s Private Rented Sector Team’s housing officers to make sure no households in Southwark are pushed into homelessness.

Our half way review, written in March, is our opportunity to share progress, insights, learnings, and future plans for the project. With thanks to Impact on Urban Health for providing the funding for this work.
