Save Generation Rent

Dear Supporter,
The voice of private renters in the national political debate is under threat. Generation Rent is facing an unexpected funding cut and has less than two months of funding left. We need your help.
We are working hard to secure new sources of long term funding, but this will take months. To keep working past September we need to raise £60,000 by 31 August from donations. These funds would allow us to continue our work empowering renters to put pressure on Parliament, the London mayoral candidates and local councils while applying for grants and building a sustainable organisation.
Please donate just £20 – or what you can afford – on our crowdfunding site, People’s Republic.  who are kindly waiving their fees because they like us so much.
Since we launched in March 2014 we have campaigned successfully to outlaw revenge evictions and cut landlord tax breaks, as well as putting housing at the centre of the General Election campaign.
But millions of private renters are still:
  • handing over more than half of their income to their landlord
  • face losing their home with two months’ notice, and
  • live in damp, draughty and dangerous properties
...so our work is not over.
The housing crisis is not going away anytime soon. With your donation, neither will Generation Rent.
Please take two minutes now to donate
Thank you for your support,
The Generation Rent team
