Young tenants to lobby Leeds council over housing crisis

Leeds Youth Fight for Jobs will be lobbying Leeds City Council this Wednesday, 12th September over housing issues as part of its 'Young Tenants Fightback' campaign.

We will be handing in a petition and sending a deputation to the council, calling on it to support our demands which include caps on rent at an affordable level and a social housing building programme.

Finding decent, affordable housing is becoming an ever greater problem for young people. A record high of 3 million 20-34 year olds still live at home, an increase of half a million in the last fifteen years.

Many who do move out have no choice but to live in houses of multiple occupancy crammed in with other people due to high rent levels in the private sector.
