A new report for the Housing and Migration Network UK, "Migrants and the Private Rented Sector", published in February is the first national report to explore the needs and experience of new migrants who live in the private rented sector. It provides evidence that new migrants are not only more likely to live in private lettings, but also that there is a greater likelihood that they will end up in poor conditions.
The report outlines practical solutions that local authorities, housing providers and voluntary and community groups have developed to bring about improvements. This breakfast briefing will discuss the findings and how they are being followed up.
Speakers: Neil Coles, Chair of the National Houses in Multiple Occupation Network, and Housing Services Manager at Maidstone Borough Council and Gill Green, Independent researcher.
