Welcome to The CH@T ~ Broadcasting straight from Cambridge House, we’re asking: what’s going on with housing in London? How can a new Mayor tackle the housing crisis?
The CH@T premieres with a series of episodes focusing the housing crisis in London, chatting with experts in housing, gentrification, and the legal system to get to the bottom of one of the biggest issues on the agenda.
In our premiere, we’re busting a few big myths about the housing crisis, hearing about who’s being hit hardest, and – most importantly – finding out what Londoners can do in the coming mayoral elections to help protect Londoners from losing their homes.
Listen in to our chat with Research and Knowledge Exchange Coordinator, Dr Hannah White, about a research project she recently completed into housing in South London. In late 2015, Dr White explored the reality of the housing crisis for Londoners by shadowing the Lambeth County Court Duty Scheme, which provides free legal advice for people with issues with their housing, speaking with people facing eviction from their homes to hear their stories, find out why people are facing such challenges, and to inform recommendations for policymakers to help people hold on to their homes.
