New Campaign Campaigns
Ban combustible building materials nowWe are the bereaved families and survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire. On the 14 June 2017 we lost 72 of our loved ones. We will never get our loved ones back but we are determined to make sure that something like this never happens again. That’s why we are campaigning for change and to make sure everyone can live in a safe home. It should seem obvious to anyone who saw the pictures of the Grenfell Tower fire that dangerous combustible materials must be banned but the Government still hasn’t made a final decision on whether to introduce one. And we know some companies that make products like those used on the Grenfell tower have been arguing against a ban. We’ve spent months speaking to experts to understand how Grenfell tower, where our families lived, came to be so dangerous. We know that combustible materials and a shoddy refurbishment contributed to the dangerous fire that night. We’ve uncovered an industry and system that seems to put profits over people and failed to keep families safe, using dangerous materials and dodgy testing practises. We want to make sure dangerous combustible materials are banned from high rises, schools, hospitals and any building were vulnerable people live or work. And any materials used are independently, properly and transparently tested. It’s over a year since the fire and these materials are still in use. We urgently need to ban these dangerous materials to make sure people are safe in their homes.60,978 of 75,000 SignaturesCreated by Grenfell United
Learn the lessons from Grenfell - make our housing system work for tenantsWe lost our loved ones, our neighbours and our homes in the Grenfell Tower fire. One of the things that makes the heartbreak so difficult is knowing that some of us raised concerns about safety before the fire but we were ignored. And today, over a year and a half since the tragedy, people living in social housing are still so often ignored and mistreated when they raise issues. With your help we want to change this. We are calling for the Government to create a new housing regulator that works for tenants. Please sign this petition to support us. The current housing regulator, is focused is on keeping housing associations in profit. It’s not enough. We need a new independent regulator that puts people before profit. After the banking crisis the Government set up the Financial Conduct Authority to look after consumers interests and after the food crisis it set up the Food Standards Agency to protect customers. It’s time for the same approach for housing. This summer the Government will publish its plans for the future of social housing in a White Paper, so we have just a few months to send a clear message: People living in social housing deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. They need a regulator that will fight for them, not just for their landlords. Please help us, sign this petition and let’s send a message that Grenfell has not been forgotten and make sure that the loss of 72 lives leads to real change for people across the country.136,532 of 200,000 SignaturesCreated by Grenfell United
