168 Tulse Hill residents sign to end damp & mould

April 2024

Our focus is crystal clear: Safe and decent homes and a landlord who collaborates rather than assigns blame. Is Lambeth up for the challenge?

Since January, we've been knocking on doors across the Tulse Hill Estate to listen to our neighbours about their issues, find out how the group can support them, and get their name down on our petition to Lambeth Council.

This is what community looks like

August 2023

Over the summer, residents of the Tulse Hill Estate have been gathering to demand respect, taking action on issues like damp, repairs, and the environment. We have been constantly told that our issues are isolated, that the damp in our flat is our fault. This isn't good enough. We are organising under the name Tulse Hill Estate Unites, and we deserve better.
