Homelessness Reduction Bill - Mass Lobby

4th October 2016
Please join us on 19 October 2016 for a mass lobby of Parliament in support of the Homelessness Reduction Bill.

The Homelessness Reduction Bill is a chance to make the most significant reform to homelessness law for 40 years, through placing new duties on councils to prevent and relieve a person’s homelessness even if they do not fit under the existing “priority need” category.

With the second reading looming, on 28 October, we are increasing our efforts to secure the support needed for the Bill when it matters.

Please join us on 19 October 2016 for a mass lobby of Parliament in support of the Homelessness Reduction Bill.

A mass lobby is when lots of people from around the country arrange to meet their MPs on the same day about a particular issue.

  • When: 1:30 - 5pm, Wednesday 19 October, though you won't need to be there the whole time.
  • Where: Abbey Community Centre, 34 Great Smith Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3BU

To take part, please fill in your details at www.crisis.org.uk/masslobby to request a meeting with your MP in Westminster on the afternoon of 19 October. You will then be emailed a briefing pack with information on the Bill and full details for the day.

We urgently need your help to make this happen. We particularly hope as many people as possible with experience of homelessness will be able to join in on the day’s lobbying, as of course, those with an experience of the problem understand it best.
