Campaign: Stop families losing their homes this Christmas

Hundreds of working families will be illegally kicked out of their homes by rogue landlords this Christmas. We need your help now to raise £10,000 to do something about it.

Safer Renting is an intelligence-led initiative by Cambridge House that works. We find the people most at risk and intervene quickly before they lose their home. And we’re the only people in London doing it.

Just £100 is all it takes to intervene in a crisis and keep a family in their home when they’re most at risk, and we can’t do it without your help.

Homelessness is getting out of control, and Christmas is the very worst time to lose your home. Without your urgent support and Cambridge House’s help, hundreds more hard working families will be left to suffer, kicked out of their homes by criminal landlords.

We’re working round the clock to keep people in their homes and your money will go directly to help the people and working families who deserve to have Christmas at home, not on the streets or trapped in a slum.

£10,000 will keep 100 families in their homes and tackle 100 criminal landlords – now that’s a Christmas present.

We’ve got 2 weeks to reach our target – help us make the difference this Christmas.
