We all know that that safe, affordable housing can be very expensive, particularly for those with few funds to their name and barred from getting benefits. Even on low paid menial jobs it’s a struggle. For that reason, large families often choose to live together – which is fair enough economically but it invariably creates stressful, noisy environments that are hardly conducive to studying or getting proper rest after a hard day’s work.
Refugees and immigrants fall victim to exploitation often from unscrupulous landlords. Unable to speak English and unfamiliar with our laws, many families sign up to tenancies which they can often ill afford, suffer poor living conditions, often endure overcrowded accommodation and feel they can’t complain because they could be evicted. Call For Duty is clearly aware of these many scams. We act to expose them and help these put upon tenants literally to move on to the fair standard of housing they both need and deserve.
