The Right to Safe and Adequate Housing
Housing is a human right, and the right to adequate housing means that people have a right to live somewhere in safety, peace and dignity. The tragedy of Grenfell made it chillingly clear that these rights are not adequately protected. We are calling on the Labour Party to commit to enshrining the human right to housing into UK law.
The Right to Food
In modern Britain, the world’s fifth largest economy, people are going hungry because they cannot afford food. As part of our Social Rights Campaign, we have produced a series of videos, the first of which investigates people in the people in the UK’s access to food , and have uncovered some deeply worrying facts.
A decade of Conservative-driven austerity has gutted local communities, squeezed wages, and stripped away the welfare safety net that so many rely on. It has profoundly refashioned British society and has meant that now thousands of families simply cannot afford to put food on the table.
