Have your renter's voice heard

Do you rent from a private landlord or letting agent?

Would you like to share your experience to improve things for private renters?

With support from the Nationwide Foundation, Housing Rights is delighted to introduce Renters’ Voice.

Renters’ Voice is a new project for people who rent privately to:

  • Share your experience of renting (good and bad)
  • Work with fellow renters to come up with ways to make renting better
  • Have a voice that is heard by landlords, politicians and government

There will be different ways to get involved, for example attending meetings and planning ways to speak up as a group, or just asking to be consulted about issues that affect you. 

There will also be opportunities to attend free training and to build skills in areas such as research, communications and representing the project. 

Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
