100 people attended the launch of 'Benefit to Society' at The
House of Commons on 28 February. Tenants from across the country
called on politicians to back the campaign and actively challenge
negative stereotypes about social housing tenants.
Nine in ten (91%) social housing tenants say they are portrayed
negatively by the media reveals a new report published today. The
report, commissioned by the tenant-led campaign 'Benefit to Society', exposes a huge gap between
perception and reality with regard to social housing tenants.
Housing Minister Dominic Raab and Shadow Housing Minister
Melanie Onn, spoke at the launch of Benefit to Society, pledging
their support to help put an end to the stigma afflicting so many
in social housing.
