Tenants’ voice programme – supporting private rented sector tenants in London to have their stories heard.

Why we are funding this project

This project is part of the Nationwide Foundation’s Transforming the Private Rented Sector programme and one of seven tenants’ voice projects. The seven organisations, of which Z2K is one, are helping tenants whose personal characteristics and circumstances mean that they cannot avoid the potential problems of living in the private rented sector – such as insecurity, poor living conditions, high costs and severe lack of choice – and which therefore puts them at increased risk of harm.

Tenants should be a central part of any changes to the private rented sector, yet their voices are often absent and excluded from meaningful debate. In response, the Nationwide Foundation’s funding for tenants’ voice is supporting private rented sector tenants by giving them a stronger voice in the debates on their personal housing issues or in housing matters in their local area.

Strategic purpose

Tenants will have a stronger voice in the debates on the private rented sector and housing.

Project description

Funding from the Nationwide Foundation is contributing towards a three-year project and is helping London tenants who were homeless or vulnerably housed to use their voices and have their stories heard, while campaigning on issues identified by these tenants.
