UK’s 1st Residents Association for exclusively for those living in Emergency and Temporary Accommodation.
In what the group are calling an early Christmas present, they are also reflecting on the 2000 children this Christmas who look set to spend the holiday season Living in Temporary Accommodation in Brighton and Hove
ETHRAG which was founded by Local Housing Campaigner Daniel Harris alongside other residents and community champions have today received formal confirmation From Brighton and Hove City Council that the City, Neighbourhoods and Communities Group will begin the process of integrating ETHRAG into the current model.
ETHRAG Founder Daniel Harris said ” This is fantastic news and a welcome step forward, having recently lived in Emergency Accommodation I understand the challenges residents face on a daily basis. The hard work from councillors like Clare Moonan and David Gibson have allowed the hidden homeless to once again have a voice.
The city indeed has a housing crisis, we also have a crisis around Emergency and Temporary Accommodation with many private landlords charging £800 for a room, with a sink, microwave and small shower. This is paid from public money and standards have dropped, ETHRAG will help to revolutionise the way we treat the vulnerable and offer a beacon of help for those who live in the dark in the city”
ETHRAG have aims which include: Better Standards, Better Treatment From landlords and Council Staff, and an End To Revenge Evictions. The Residents Association’s main objective is to be able to provide a safe space for residents to come along and get involved, we want to end the isolation and help people to fulfil there full potential in life.
