Thousands of Londoners are being impacted by the Building Safety Crisis. We have started to see progress from Government in recent weeks, but it is nowhere near enough. Too many leaseholders and residents across London are living in fear over their building’s safety, and many face crippling bills.
Leaseholders are having to pay while developers are being let off the hook. A survey undertaken by the UK Cladding Action Group showed that a worrying nine out of ten leaseholders affected by the scandal have experienced worsening mental health.
Londoners affected by the crisis need free, expert support and advice to negotiate their situations.
On 26 January 2022 the London Assembly passed a Lib Dem-led amendment to the Mayor’s Draft Budget requesting funding for the creation of a Building Safety Crisis Support Hub. The Hub would provide both mental health and practical advice to those affected by the Building Safety Crisis in our city, online and in-person.
We’ve shown there is cross-party support for the Hub, but the final decision is in Mayor Sadiq Khan’s hands. We need to put pressure on him to ensure he includes funding for the Hub in his final budget, due at the end of February. Will he do the right thing?
Help us push the Mayor to do what the Assembly has asked of him, and set up a Building Safety Crisis Support Hub by signing our petition.
