Britain Needs Housing!

South Wing, Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton BN1 3XG

All welcome  – full disabled access

Andy Winter Fringe 12Sussex LRC meets to discuss a priority issue for people of all ages, locally and nationally, with guest speaker Andy Winter, Chief Executive of Brighton Housing Trust (BHT).

As the UK suffers a housing shortage and rising homelessness, the Coalition’s response has been to cut housing benefit and legal aid, while also eroding people’s rights to Council or social accommodation.  Andy Winter (BHT) joins us to discuss the housing crisis and rising local homelessness, how this is being affected by the Coalition’s cuts to benefits and legal aid, and local developments across Sussex.

See Andy’s great speech from Brighton Fringe 2012, when he explained how the UK can afford welfare and housing.

Support Sussex workers in dispute

Brighton & Hove Green and Tory councilors have voted for “modernised pay and conditions” for GMBall Council staff which could see low paid workers lose up to £4,000 a year.  The Green-Tory plan will also allow Council officers to sack staff and then re-hire them on worse terms.  Read more and sign the GMB’s petition opposing this scandalous attack Then come along on Tuesday to find out what more we can do to support staff at B&H City Council.

We also support staff in dispute with Sodexo at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.  Although this dispute has slipped from the local headlines, it remains unsettled and ongoing. Latest here

Community Base is a 5 minute walk straight down Queens Road from Brighton railway station.

Light refreshments will be served from 7pm with the meeting starting at 7.30pm.
