Haringey Housing Action Group meets regularly for individuals to give and receive support on housing problems and campaign for better housing. We are not a service, we work collectively to solve each others’ problems. (If you’re looking for an advice service, here are some housing advice links.) Many of us have had housing problems ourselves or still do and we know we are stronger together. Haringey Housing Action Group are part of London Coalition Against Poverty.

The group meets several times a month; see the side panel for up-to-date timings and venue. The meeting is open to anyone who wants to take action to improve housing conditions in Haringey.

Ways of working
We encourage everyone who comes along to meetings to get involved with supporting one another and sharing skills. We work on the idea that through solidarity and direct action,  people have the power to change their own lives.
