The workshop will be discussing issues in relation to the needs of older private tenants in London and we would like to hear your views on some of the challenges faced and potential solutions - including changes to housing policy in London. We will be looking at some of the broader issues - e.g physical conditions of accommodation, access issues, access to social housing as people age, and the overall scale of problems and would very much like you to come along.
This workshop will be bringing together members of small groups and organisations as well as individuals who may or may not be private renters themselves.
