At Westminster CAB we like to get involved in national campaigns that affect local residents. Here are some of the exciting campaigns that we’re involved in:
Settled & Safe: A Renter’s Right
This campaign is aimed at improving the private rented sector, an issue that’s high on the political agenda and a big issue for Westminster residents. It aims to secure better protection for private renters, end extortionate rental fees and end retaliatory evictions. Our Research & Campaigns team have already undertaken a survey of the fees charged by letting agencies in the borough and fed the results into the national campaign which you can read about here.
26th – 30th October: Big Energy Saving Week!
Every year we take part in this huge campaign, which last year reached over 27 million people! We will be helping to highlight positive, practical actions that will help you take control of bills and save energy. Here’s a video introducing the week:
2nd – 6th November: National Consumer Week
On October 1st a new Consumer Rights Act will be introduced. This aims to help consumers make better choices when they buy, saving them time and money. We will be helping to raise awareness about this new act and letting residents know what the legislation means for them.
