Join our meetings
Our Open Meetings are for everyone, whether you’re facing eviction, sick of paying too much for rubbish housing, or wanting to work in solidarity with those struggling as a result of renting.
At the meetings, we aim to identify common problems and struggles, and form specific working groups to tackle them. The meeting is for all tenants to get involved, participate and contribute, to make our voices heard and respected!
Join the us for an Open Meeting on Zoom on Mondays at 6pm to discuss how COVID-19 is affecting renters in Oxford and what we should do about it.

Following intentions of support for renters from both Central Government and Oxford City Council, we want to hear from people who are renting in Oxford about what they are facing. Our aim is to build a clearer picture of the situation in order to lobby local and national government on behalf of renters for adequate support, and end to all evictions and an extended rent freeze.
