Education was a hot topic this week in Ilford, where Take Back The City went to hear the views and demands of residents of Jason Lee House. Run by the Single Homeless Project, Jason Lee provides a service for people who can't access social housing. Many felt the education system hadn't equipped then with the skills they needed to survive in the city. Unsurprisingly, more social housing was another top demand...
The four demands were:
- More social housing
- Regulation of private landlords
- More life skills taught in schools (e.g how to manage a bank account/access public services etc.)
- Affordable/free training for over 25s
